    \[V=\frac{4}{3}\pi r^3\] if i remember correctly taking derivatives you get \[V'=4\pi r^2r'\]

    you are told \(r'=-0.5\) and you need \(V'\)

    oh and i guess after 12 hours \(r=6\) so make the replacements and you are done

    is 4pi(36)*0.5 = 72

    why not 4pi(0.5*12)^2=144

    \(r=6\) cm because it starts at 12 cm and decreases at a rate of 0.5 cm per hour
