Height (h1) of cylindrical container = 15 cm Radius (r1) of circular end of container 

= 12/2 = 6 cm

Radius (r2) of circular end of ice-cream cone

= 6/2 = 3 cm

Height (h2) of conical part of ice-cream cone = 12 cm

Let n ice-cream cones be filled with ice-cream of the container.

Volume of ice-cream in cylinder = n × (Volume of 1 ice-cream cone + Volume of hemispherical shape on the top)

Therefore, 10 ice-cream cones can be filled with the ice-cream in the container.
