A box company produces two sizes of pizza boxes. The smaller box has a surface area of 260 square inches. The larger box has a length, width, and height that are twice those of the smaller box. What is the surface area of the larger box?

Choices are:

A. 520 square inches
B. 1,040 square inches
C. 1,560 square inches
D. It cannot be determined from the information given.

• Math -

The surface area of two similar figures or solids is proportional to the square of the ratio of linear dimensions.

From
"The larger box has a length, width, and height that are twice those of the smaller box"
we conclude that the ratio of linear dimensions is 2.
2²=4.
What is 4*260?
