Four Pumkins on my porch

Question

Posted · Report post

Three pumpkins are sitting on my front porch. They are spherical, of radii 4 ft, 3 ft, and 2 ft, and they are mutually tangent. I put a fourth pumpkin of radius 1 ft on top, in the hollow . . .How high off the porch is the top of the last pumpkin?
