I love math, and I love to teach it.

Hi, Michelle,

Story Problem Question: What is the length of the radius?

Given Data:

**1 gallon≅ 0.1337 ft**^{3 }(Volume of one gallon) Then**550 gallons≅.1337*550**(Volume of 550 gallons)**550 gallons≅ 73.535 ft**

^{3 }

Formula for the radius of a spherical tank:

**r= (3 (V/4π)**^{(1/3) }(Anything to the 1/3 power is also representative of the cubic root of that something.) V=volume of sphere Now substitute the calculated volume value into the formula:**r= (3 (73.535/4π))**

^{(1/3) π=pi}**r=(3 (5.85172937) )**

^{(1/3)}I will let you finish this problem. If I have helped you, please give me a thumbs up.
