anonymous one year ago The volume V of a sphere is a function of its radius r. The formula below describes this relationship. What is the value of V(3), the volume of a sphere with a radius of 3 units? A. 27 B. 12 C. 4 D. 36

You didnt include the formula, so I will use the one I know: $V(r)=\frac{4}{3} \pi r^3$Which can be solved by substitution: $V(3)=\frac{4}{3} \pi (3)^3=4 \pi (3)^2=4\pi(9)=36\pi$I'm not sure why the answer doesn't line up, but my guess would be that in the formula that is (supposed to be) given for this problem. The volume's "units" contain a $\pi$ so the answer would just be 36.
