the basic formula should be Volume of cone= 1/3bxh so all you have to do is plug in your numbers V of ice cream A = ( pi 5^2 (16) ) /3 = 400pi/3 = 133.33 pi V of ice cream B = ( pi 4^2 (20) ) /3 = 320 pi/3 = 106. 67 pi   As in comparison, you can figure out which one would give her more volume of ice cream :) A.
