    I got the same volume formula and my volume on the windows calculator was \(904.7786842338604526772412943845\) using its estimation of \(pi\). The exact answer is \(288\ \pi\).

    288 pi = 904.7808

    And so I agree with @Hero again. Maybe it was just an issue with the computer code. I don't see why anyone would substitute a symbol for \(\pi\) if that's what that means.

    Pfft, \([\text{in}^3]\), you're right again.
