A bowling ball is a solid ball with a spherical surface and diameter 30 cm. To custom fit a bowling ball for each bowler, three holes are drilled in the ball. Bowler Kris has holes drilled that are 8 cm deep and have diameters of 2 cm, 2 cm, and 3 cm. Assuming the three holes are right circular cylinders, find the number of cubic centimeters in the volume of the fitted bowling ball. Express your answer in terms of pi.

I have no idea how to do this problem, could you guys please help?

sure you have an idea.

You know how to finds the volume of a sphere, right?

You know how to find the volume of a cylinder, right?

So, find the volume of each cylinder, add them up and subtract that from the volums of the sphere.

Done. What's you get?

The answer is 4466 Pi because the volume of the ball itself is 4500 pi and the volume of the three holes are 34pi. Thus, 4500pi-34pi=4466pi.
