Answer:629.92

Step-by-step explanation:The minimum volume of the can that can hold 4 tennis balls must have at least the same volume as 4 tennis balls.

The volume of one tennis ball, V =

where r = radius of the tennis ball

The diameter of a ball = 6.7 cm

Its radius will be = 6.7 / 2 = 3.35 cm

Volume, V, will be:

V = 157.48

Hence, the volume of 4 balls will be:

4 * V = 4 * 157.48 = 629.92

The minimum volume that the cylindrical can has to have is 629.92 .
