    Radius = 7.21 feet.

    Height = 21.63 feet

    - to the nearest hundredth.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the radius be r feet, then the height will be 3r feet.

    So the volume = 1,178.1 = 1/3 π r^2 h

    1.178.1 = 1/3 π r^2 3r

    1/3 π 3 r^3 = 1178.1

    π r^3 = 1178.1

    r^3 = 1178.1 / π

    r^3 = 375

    r = 7.211 feet.

    So the height = 3 * 7.211 ft

    = 21.633 ft
