What is the formula for surface area of a sphere

3. The formula to find the surface area of a sphere is to take the radius of the sphere and square it and multiply that amount by pi and then multiply that by 4. This is written algebraically as S=4πr 2 , where S is the surface area, r is the radius, and the value of π is 3.14. Rewrite the equation to solve for the radius of the sphere if you know the sphere’s surface area. Then estimate the radius of a sphere given a surface area of 500 meters2 .
