    For a sphere V=\frac{4}{3} \pi r^3. You can write an expression for the total volume of the three spheres, since volumes simply add, then equate that to an expression for the volume of a single sphere:
    \frac{4}{3} \pi (6)^3+\frac{4}{3} \pi (8)^3+\frac{4}{3} \pi (x)^3=\frac{4}{3} \pi (27)^3.

    Solve for x.
