Explanation:

Below is an attachment containing the solution.

Answer:#.37 times greaterExplanation:Volume of a sphere is: V = ·π·r³Since it is given the diameter of the basketball and the softball, their ratios are r₁ = 3in and r₂ = 2in, in which index 1 represents the basketball and index 2, the softball.

Calculating the volume of basketball:

V₁ = . 3.14 . 3³

V₁ = 113.04 in³

Calculating the volume of softball:

V₂ = . 3.14 . 2³

V₂ = 33.5 in³

Comparing one volume with the other:

= = 3.37

We have that V₁ = 3.37V₂

This means the volume of a basketball is 3.37 times greater than the volume of a softball.
