The surface area of a cone is 38 in^2. The radius of a similar cone is triple the radiusof the orginal cone. What is the surface area of the new cone?

  • geometry -

    Similar cones have area proportional to the square of the linear dimensions.
    So if the new cone has three times the radius, the area is 3²=9 time that of the original cone.
