Math 2 questions  Reiny, Sunday, March 16, 2014 at 7:19pm
volume of 2 similar solids is proportional to the cube of their corresponding sides, so
x/240 = 23^3/92^3 = (23/92)^3 = (1/4)^3 = 1/64
64x = 240
x = 3.75
the new volume is 3.75 ft^3
If I told you that the surface area of 2 similar solids is proportional to the square of their corresponding sides, can you set it up like I just did ?
let me know what you got.
