Using 3.14 for pi, rounding to the nearest tenth, if necessary. A spherical storage tank has a diameter of 48 ft and is full of water. How many delivery trucks with cylindrical tanks measuring 8 ft in diameter and 10 ft long can be completly filled from the storage tank?

Math 
Reiny,
You gave the diameter of the large storage tank but not its height.
So we don't have enough information.
Each smaller tank on a truck has a volume of
π(4^2)(10) = 502.4
Once you know height of the large tank
evaluate its volume using the same step I took above, then divide that answer by 502.4
