Hello everyone, I'm trying to figure out this point on the sphere. The orginal equation is this: x^2 + y^2 + z^2 ≤ 16; 2 ≤ y ≤ 4;

Here is the picture:

If you look where it shows a picture of the sphere and i have an arrow pointing to a point on top of the circle. Has coordinates (0,2, ? ). I"m trying to figure out the point where that ? is. I know the x and y coordinates havn't changed at all, only the z coordinates. Sorry its alittle messy. I know the point below it is (0,2,0). Thanks.
