This is the cross section of the cone of solid X.    

The top bit is INSIDE the hemisphere.  So I am only interested in the bottom smaller cone.

 

Volume of little cone:

 

$$\\=\frac{1}{3}\pi r^2 h\\\\
=\frac{1}{3}\pi* 25* 15\\\\
=\frac{1}{3}\pi* 25* 15\\\\
=75\pi\\\\$$

 

Volume of hemisphere

$$\\=\frac{1}{2}*\frac{4}{3} \pi r^3\\\\
=\frac{4}{6}\pi* 9^3\\\\
=\frac{2}{3}\pi* 9^3\\\\
=486 \pi$$

 

total volume of  solid X = $$486\pi + 75\pi = 561 \pi\;\;cm^3$$

 

Now the ratio of surface areas of X:Y   =     25:36

so the ratio of lengths of   X:Y              =    5:6

and the ratio of volumes      X:Y           =   125: 216

 

$$\\\frac{216}{125}=\frac{Y}{561\pi}\\\\
\frac{216}{125}\times 561\pi=Y\\\\
Y=\frac{216}{125}\times 561\pi\\\\
Volume\;of\;Y=\frac{121176\pi}{125}\;\;cm^3\\\\$$

the radius of the hemisphere must be 15cm 

so all you have to do is change the R of the equation of what Melody had done from 9 to 15
