(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Given that the surface ares of a sphere is36(pi)x^2+24(pi)x+12(pi), state the volume of a cylinder that would exactly contain the sphere. (note that the height of the cylinder is twice the radius of the sphere).

2. Relevant equations

Sphere SA= 4(pi)r^2

VolCylinder= (pi)r^2h

3. The attempt at a solution

i tried to factor the function to figure out x, but its not factorable. Someone please help...
