**bobpursley**, Friday, April 15, 2011 at 7:17amvolume is in length^3 units, surface area is in lenght^2 units.

So no, it is not possible to equate those. Area cannot be equal to volume.

45cm^2=? 45cm^3

1=?cm No, cm cannot be unitless

Now, I assume your teacher is not considering units...just asking if the numerals can equal.

Yes, if one does not care about units, they can be "equaled", whatever that means.

It really is a stupid question, perhaps your teacher was not thinking.
