I'm confused with how to solve this problem, so help would be great!
The volume of any spherical balloon can be found by using the formula V= 4/3 pi r^3. Write an equation for r in terms of V and pi
4/3*pi*r^{3} = V
Multiply by 3
3*(4/3)*pi*r^{3} = 3*V
4*pi*r^{3} = 3V
r^{3} = 3V/(4*pi)
r = [3V/4pi]^{1/3}
I hope all of this comes out ok. Check my work.
thanks for your help. :)
