The state of texas covers approxmiately 268,581 squared mi. During a hail storm the entire state is covered in 1billion meters of hail.(average radius of 1.4292cm)assume the hail falls so that the gaps of air are limited to 26% of the volume. As the state begins to warm, the hail melts.(piece of ice =.92g/mL)Determine the number of hail stones required

"1billion meters of hail"
Do you mean 1 billion m³ of hail?
We can calculate how many hailstones there were before they melted. What does melting (and the density of ice has to do with the problem?
Please recheck the exact wording of the question.
