find out what percentage r changes if you increase the area by 2% and then find out what percentage volume changes when you change r by (whatever you find from the first part)

i dont think you need calculus to solve this

first choose a number for r, find the surface area with this r, then change the surface area to 102% of that area and solve for r, the percent difference will be [(r2/r1)1]*100

what did you choose for radius

r1 = 1 A1 = 4pi A2 = 4pi*1.02 r2 = sqrt(1.02) percent difference between r1 and r2 = ((sqrt(1.02)/1)1)*100

which is about 1 percent, but that's what percent the radius changes, so now we know that if the area changes 2 percent, the radius changes 1 percent, so if we find out how much the volume changes when we change the radius by 1 percent, we will have found out how much the volume changes when we change the area by 2 percent

sorry ugly formatting

now we find the volume using r1 and then using r2 and find the percent difference.
