Joe has exactly enough paint to paint the surface of a cube whose side length is 2. It turns out that this is also exactly enough paint to paint the surface of a sphere. If the volume of this sphere is $$\frac{K \sqrt{6}}{\sqrt{\pi}}$$, then what is K?

Area of the cube =   2 x 2 *6 = 24 sq units

VOLUME of a sphere = 4/3  pi r^3     find r from the volume equation given

4/3 pi r^3 = k sqrt 6 / sqrt pi

r^3 = 3/4  * k sqrt 6 /  pi sqrt pi

r = cubrt ( 3/4 *k sqrt 6/ (pi sqrt pi )

Surface of a sphere = 4 pi r^2     sub in the r value and equate to 24 sq units

4 pi (cubrt 3/4 *k sqrt 6/ (pi sqrt pi))^2 = 24

Solve fo k = 8

Surface area of a sphere =4*Pi*R^2
Surface area of a cube =S^2 x 6
2^2 x 6 =24 - SA of the cube.
24 = 4*Pi*R^2, solve for R
R = Sqrt(6/pi)
Volume of sphere =4/3 x Pi x [sqrt(6/pi)]^3
4/3 x Pi x [sqrt(6/pi)]^3 =K*sqrt(6) /sqrt(pi), solve for K
K = 8
