Algebra question help

A cone has volume V=⅓πr2h, where r is the radius of the cone's base and h is the height of the cone. Find the height in centimeters of a cone with volume 96πcm3 and radius 6 centimeters.
 
Note π = pi obviously, looks kind of like an "n" on this site's formatting though.

Just substitute the known information into the formula and solve for h.
 
96 = (1/3) * π * (6)² * (h) 
 
96 = 12π * h
 
h = 96/12π = 8/π = 8/3.14 = 2.55 cm
