    well.. here are some hints: #1 : Note that diameter = 2* radius (r) In simple terms diameter = double radius. Therefore radius = 1/2 diameter. #2: Surface area of a sphere (since your finding the surface area of a basketball) is given by the formula: |dw:1433044720635:dw| #3: Volume of a sphere is given by the formula: |dw:1433044784627:dw| Use these and you'll be fine
