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 -

(1/2)(1/2)(1/2) = 1/8
64/8 = 8

half the height, half the length, half the width
