of each ball is 13 cm.
a. What is the volume of the cylinder rounded to the nearest cubed centimeter?
b. What is the total volume of the three balls rounded to the nearest cubed centimeter ?
c. What percent of the volume of the container is occupied by the three balls?

  1. height= 13*3cm
    diametercan=13cm
    volume= PI(d/2)^2 * h

    total volume balls= 3*4/3 PI (D/2)^3
