 Question 157622: I have a sphere with a diameter of 88,846 miles, and another sphere with a diameter of 7,926 miles. how would i find the surface area to compare, and then eventually find the ratio between the surface areas? then, using the same numbers, i need to find the ratio of their volumes? which means i need to know how to find their volumes. i know the formula for surface area is SA=4(3.14159)r^2 or surface area=four times pi times the radius squared. then the volume formula would be volume=4/3 times pi times radius cubed (^3) i dont know if this makes ANY sense... but i dont understand why everytime i calculate such big numbers on my calculator, it says something about "E+11" at the end.. i dont understand it. HELP? :)thanks. Click here to see answer by nerdybill(7090)

 Question 161159: GPS Satellites orbit 12,500 miles above the surface of the earth. Point A represents the position of a satellite. Line segments AB and AC are externally tangent to the earth touch the earth at points B and C. Segment AB = 15,977 miles from point A(satellite) to point B(edge of earth). Line segment AE represents a line from the center of the earth to the orbiting satellite. Line segment DE, which is a portion of segment AE, represents the radius of the earth. The question is, What is the radius represented by line segment DE? If AB = 15,977 then BC also equal 15,977, right... I am not sure how to find the diameter in order to get the radius...
