I have now done quite a few of these type of questions for you.

Show me that you can do this easy one.

v = s^3

64 = s^3

s = 4 in

SA = 6s^2

= 6 x 4^2

= 1024 in^2

Now I know v = 64 in^3 & SA = 1024 in^3

The ratio is 1024/64 = 16:1

is it right????

6 x 4^2

= 6x16

= 96 , not 1024

so ratio is 96/64 = 3/2
