A.   80 C.   50
B.   60 D.   70

B.   $y = 5x^3 - 2x^2 + x - 31$ D.   $y = \frac{5}{3}x^3 - \frac{1}{2}x^2 + x - \frac{83}{2}$

A meteorologist is inflating a spherical balloon with a helium gas. If the radius of a balloon is changing at a rate of 1.5 cm/sec., express the volume V of the balloon as a function of time t (in seconds). Hint: Use composite function relationship Vsphere = 4/3 πr3 as a function of x (radius), and x (radius) as a function of t (time).

A.   V(t) = 5/2 πt3 C.   V(t) = 9/2 πt3
B.   V(t) = 7/2 πt3 D.   V(t) = 3/2 πt3
