A spherical scoop of vanilla ice cream with radius of 2 inches is dropped onto the surface of a dish of hot chocolate sauce. As it melts, the ice cream spreads out uniformly forming a cylindrical region 8 inches in radius. Assuming the density of the ice cream remains constant, how many inches deep is the melted ice cream? Express your answer as a common fraction.

Sphere volume = cylinder volume

4/3 pi (2^3) = pi 8^2 h

4/3 (8) = 64 h I think you can solve it for 'h' from here ..... inches
