you are dealing with two equations
1. surface area of sphere = 4π r^2
2. volume of sphere = (4/3)π r^3
notice all you need is the radius.
Since we cannot see your diagrams, #1, and #2 cannot be checked
3. given 4πr^2 = 482.8
r^2 = 482.8/(4π) = 38.42
r= √38.42 = 6.198
volume = (4/3)πr^3 = 997.53 , looks like a)
you must have the radius given to you, just plug into the formula
(4/3)πr^3 = 1349
r^3 = 1349/((4/3)π) = 322.05
r= (322.05)^(1/3) , the cube root of 322.05
= 6.85 (looks like b) )
fractions are really just divisions
e.g. 3/4 = 3 ÷ 4 = .75
you calculator should have a key for π
for powers look for key such as yx or a variation of that
