A right circular cone is inscribed inside a sphere. The right circular cone has the radius of the base of 4 inches and the height is greater than 2 inches. The sphere has a radius of 5 inches. What is the ratio of the volume of the cone to the volume of the sphere? Leave your answer in fractional form.

please help! thanks (:
