    Until they give you some way to relate R and r, there is no way to proceed. Sorry!

    sorry about the cap and lower case, the R's were the same

    If R to the power of 3 = 351
    What is the value of 4 times R to the power of 3?

    if that explains it better

    the answer is 1404, or at least that what the answer key says.
    How do they get the answer???

    r^3 = 351

    4r^3 = 4\times 351.
