how can you find the perimeter of a cone i.e. a 3d shape!

LA= 1/2(l*B)where "LA" is lateral area, "l" is lateral height and "B" is the perimeter of the baseMore info:B- otherwise (in a cone) known as 2Ï€r. 2Ï€r is also known as DÏ€ where "D" is diameter

A cone bearer is a cone that bears

Neither. A cone is a cone.

Yes, a cone has an apex. To be precise, it is the point at the tip of the cone. This is also called the vertex of the cone.

Three dimensional objects, such as a cone, do not have a perimeter in any meaningful way.

You don't. Perimeter is a concept associated with plane figures, not solid shapes.

With great difficulty because a cone is a 3D object and only 2D shapes have perimeters

You can't find the perimeter of a cone because it's a 3D shape, but you can find the volume; the formula is 1/3x3.14xr2xh (r= radius of the base/ h= height).

(pi)r2x height divided by 2

The shape described cannot be a cone since a cone has a base at one end and a point - of zero length - at the other!

That is called lateral area. The formula for lateral area is: LA=1/2Pxl P stands for perimeter l stands for slant height

perimeter.

Although some have said Archimedes, my opinion is that the formulas for area and perimeter of a rectangle were well known before his time (300BC). The Babylonians in 1500BC knew how to create Pythagorean triples, so I wouldn't be surprised if they knew this. Archimedes did discover more difficult formulas, such as perimeter and area of a circle, and volume of a sphere and a cone.
