A cone has a slant height of 10 centimeters and lateral area of 60pi square centimeters. What is the volume of the sphere with a radius equal to that of a cone?
we tried solving and got 4.37 or so for the radius and we couldn't get any further than that

A lateral area=Pi*R*l, where Rradius,
lslant height
Pi*R*10=60*Pi
R=6
The volume of sphere=(4/3)*Pi*R^3=
1.33*3.14*6^3=902.06
more accurately 1.33333*3.14159*216=904.78
