the volume of a larger prism is 128 cubic cm. if the prisms are similar with linear ration of 4:3, what is the volume of the smaller prism?
We have a theorem that says
The volumes of similar objects are proportional to the cubes of their sides.
So let the volume of the smaller prism be V
then V/128 = 3^3 / 4^3
V/128 = 27/64
cross-multiply and solve
