A small can of juice contains 16 fl oz. A large can has twice the base circumference of the first. How
much juice is in the large can if both cans are right circular cylinders and the second can is similar
to the first?
A) 32 fl oz B) 64 fl oz C) 128 fl oz D) 256 fl oz
the volume of two similar solids is proportional to the cubes of their corresponding sides
so x/16 = 2^3/1^3
x/16 = 8/1
What do you think?
