a right hexagonal prism is enlarged by a scale factor of 5.7

a)determine the value of volume of large prism/volume of small prism. do not round answer.. how do i figure this out?

• math foundations 20 -

the volume of two similar solids is proportional to the cube of corresponding sides.

So if one side is 1, then the corresponding side of the larger is 5.7

volume larger/volume of smaller = 5.7^3/1^3
= 185.193 : 1
