What information are you given?

Do you know the volume, the surface area, the circumference, or maybe the diameter?

I mean the radius and volume

Surface area is 13r

Oh okay...Assuming that the " r " in " 13r " stands for the radius......

The formula for the surface area of a sphere is:

surface area = 4π r2          Replace " surface area " with " 13r ".

13r = 4π r2                         Divide both sides of the equation by r.

13 = 4π r                            Divide both sides of the equation by 4π.

13/(4π) = r

So, the radius =  $$\frac{13}{4\pi}$$   units

The formula for the volume of a sphere is:

volume = $$\frac43 \pi r^3$$                 Replace " r " with " $$\frac{13}{4\pi}$$ ".

volume = $$\frac43 \pi (\frac{13}{4\pi})^3$$           Simplify.

volume = $$\frac43\pi(\frac{2197}{64\pi^3}) = \frac43(\frac{2197}{64\pi^2}) = \frac{2197}{48\pi^2}$$     cubic units
