Differentials

The radius of a sphere was measured to be 10 cm with a possible error of 1/4 cm.

(a) Use a differential to estimate the maximum error in the calculated surface area. (I'm not sure how to do this part)

(b) Use a differential to estimate the maximum error in the calculated volume. (I got 100pi for this and it was correct).
