A cooking pot used in the cafeteria weighs 64 pounds when it is filled with soup. How much would a smilar pot witha scale factor of 1/2 weigh when filled with the same soup?

would you just do 64 divided by 2? If not then what do i do?

  • MATH!!! - ,

    height and diameter both *1/2

    volume = ( pi d^2/4) h
    so volume proportional to scale factor cubed
    (1/2)^3 = 1/8
    64/8 = 8

  • MATH!!! - ,

    umm i still don't understand
