Percentage increase in volume of the sphere if radius is increased by a given percentage
• Last Updated : 22 Mar, 2021

Given here is a sphere, whose radius is increased by a given percentage. The task is to find the percentage increase in the volume of the sphere.
Examples:

```Input: x = 10
Output: 33.1%

Input: x = 50
Output: 237.5%```

Approach

• Let, the radius of the sphere = a
• given percentage increase = x%
• volume before increase = 4/3*πa^3
• new radius after increase = a + ax/100
• so, new volume = 4/3*π(a^3 + (ax/100)^3 + 3a^3x/100 + 3a^3x^2/10000)
• change in volume = 4/3*π((ax/100)^3 + 3a^3x/100 + 3a^3x^2/10000)
• percentage increase in volume = (4/3*π*((ax/100)^3 + 3a^3x/100 + 3a^3x^2/10000)/4/3*π*a^3) * 100 = x^3/10000 + 3x + 3x^2/100 ## C++
