**greatest ever**, Wednesday, June 25, 2014 at 8:25amvolume is proportional to the cube of a linear dimension

Area is proportional to the square of a linear dimension

The ratio of the volumes is 40/5 or 8

That means the linear dimensions have the ratio of ∛8 or 2

That means the areas have the ratio of 2ē or 4

so the area of the larger s 4 x 4 inē = 16 inē
