  1. dV/dr = 8pir*dr/dr
    which at r = 6 is 8pi(6)

  2. actually the answer is 64pi ft^3/ft.
    can you figure out what you did wrong? thanks.

  3. Nope, for the data you gave me the answer is 48pi

    this is a very straighforward question,
    to have an answer of 64 pi, perhaps you were to find the rate when r = 8.
    Check your typing
