Python program
I am having trouble trying to decipher how to write a program in Python. The first thing is calculating the volume and surface area of a sphere from it radius, given as input. The formulas are V=4/3pir^3 and A=4pir^2. Thanks

open a file and type:
import math
radius = raw_input("what is the radius? ")
volume = ((4/3.0)*math.pi*(radius**3))
area = (4*math.pi*(radius**2))
print "The volume is: ", volume
print "The area is: ", area
raw_input("Press button to continue...")
save the file with a .py extension and run it.
