A spherical balloon has a volume of 268 cubic cm. If more air is pumped in so that its radius is 3 times as long, what is its new volume?

My answer: 2,412 cubic cm

New Volume = 27 * 268 = 7236 cc.

ALTERNATE METHOD:

V = (4/3)3.14*r^3 = 268 cc,

4.1888r^3 = 268,

r^3 = 268 / 4.1888 = 63.980,

r1 = 4.

New Radius = r2 = 3r1 = 3*4 = 12cm.

New Volume:

V = (4/3)3.14*(12)^3,

V = 4.1867 * 1728 = 7235 CC.
