1) What is the volume of a cylinder of radius 14 cm and height 24 cm? That is the volume of the water.

2) What is the volume of a single sphere of radius 2 cm?

3) What is the volume of 14 such spheres?

4) So what is the total volume of the water and 14 spheres?

5) Since that is all contained in a cylinder of radius 14 cm, what height in that cylinder will give that total volume?
