Answer :

Radius (*r*1) of 1st sphere = 6 cm

Radius (*r*2) of 2nd sphere = 8 cm

Radius (*r*3) of 3rd sphere = 10 cm

Let the radius of the resulting sphere be *r*.

The object formed by recasting these spheres will be the same in volume as the sum of the volumes of these spheres.

The volume of 3 spheres = Volume of resulting sphere

[r1^{3} + r2^{3} + r3^{3}] = r^{3}

[6^{3} + 8^{3} + 10^{3}] = r^{3}

r^{3} = 216 + 512 + 1000

r^{3} = 1728

r = 12 cm

**Hence, the radius of the resulting sphere, r = 12 cm.**
