the volume of a rectangular prism is 256 cubic centimeters. What is the volume of a similar rectangular prism that has edge lengths one fourth as long as the edge lengths of the original prism?

  • Math -

    dimensions were a,b,c, volume was v = a*b*c

    new volume is (a/4)(b/4)(c/4) = abc/64 = v/64

    if edges are scaled by f,
    area is scaled by f^2
    volume is scaled by f^3
