the closest you are away from any given axis is 2

OpenStudy (anonymous):
so my radius would be 2^2?

OpenStudy (amistre64):
your radius = 2 :) since the center is 2 away

sonofa can u help? would the volume b squared or cubed or just 24?

OpenStudy (anonymous):
so i can use (x-a)^2 + (y-b)^2 + (z-c)^2 = r^2 to get the equation?

the first quadrant is bounded by the xyz axises; any thing that goes beyong those bounds is out of bounds

OpenStudy (amistre64):
since you closes distance to any given axis is "2"; your radius has to be confined to "2"

OpenStudy (anonymous):
alright..thx so much for your help and time

OpenStudy (amistre64):
youre welcome
