How do i do it

Divide both sides by Pie, then multiply both sides by 3/4. finally cube root.

What are you stuck on?

Rearrange to get all terms in r (i.e: the r^3 term, in this case) on one side, and everything else on the other side.

Given r3=r^3 = \cdots, then taking the cube root of both sides will give you an expression for r. :smile:

I'll work through a different example to show you the ideas involved. :yep:

The volume of a cone is V=13πr2hV = \frac{1}{3} \pi r^2 h

Multiply both sides by 3 to get rid of the 1/3: 3V=πr2h3V = \pi r^2 h

Divide both sides by pi: 3Vπ=r2h\frac{3V}{\pi} = r^2 h

Divide both sides by h: 3Vπh=r2\frac{3V}{\pi h} = r^2

Take the square root of both sides: 3Vπh=r\sqrt{\frac{3V}{\pi h}} = r

Your example is very similar. :smile:

Thank you very much sir. I rep you
There is an answer which shows "R= Cube Root of (6V/PI) / 2" in an assessment book. Does anyone know how the author went to this final answer instead of what was given by James H. above?

Any idea?

3V/4 = 6V/8 so they've just taken the cube root of 8 (i.e. 2) outside the root sign
