The ice cream cone (Posted on 2010-03-01) Difficulty: 3 of 5
David recently visited Pop's Ice Cream Shoppe and ordered the $1 sugar cone with one scoop of vanilla ice cream placed firmly atop the cone.

Pop told David that he would receive a percentage discount in the cost of the treat equal to the closest integer value to the answer of the following question if he answered it correctly:

"If the sugar cone is a right circular cone with a height of 10 inches, and the scoop of vanilla ice cream is a perfect sphere with a diameter of 4 inches, and both the cone and sphere are equal in spatial volume, what percentage of ice cream is above the base of the cone?"

David, a bright student, gave a correct answer. How much did David pay for the ice cream cone?
