1,000 m³

1,256 m³

1,570 m³

2. What is the approximate surface area of the sphere?

225 yd2

707 yd2

1,767 yd2 (my choice)

5,301 yd2

3. What is the approximate volume of the sphere if the surface area is 482.8 mm²?

**Reiny**, Sunday, April 29, 2012 at 12:59pmyou 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)

4.

you must have the radius given to you, just plug into the formula

5.

(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 y^{x}or a variation of that

to do 322.05^(1/3) I entered

322.05

y^{x}

(1/3)

=

to get 6.85447...
