How would I set that up?

I have no problem finding the equation of a sphere when they give the center point and the radius, of course, but what do I need to know to find these equations?

[tex](x-s)^2+(y-s)^2+(z-s)^2=s^2[/tex]

Use the last condition that it passes through the point (5,1,4) to solve for s and you're done.
