A spherical shell is formed by taking a solid sphere of radius 20.0 cm and hollowing out a spherical section from the shell's interior. Assume the hollow section and the sphere itself have the same center location.

a) If the hollow section takes up 90% of the total volume, what is its radius?

b) What is the ratio of the outer area to the inner area of the shell?
