A large cylinder has a volume of about 5,400 cubic cm. A small cylinder is similar in shape to the larger cylinder with a scae factor of 2/3.Which measurement is closest to the volume of a cylinder.
f)1600cubic cm
g)2400 cubic cm
h)2700 cubic cm
j)3600 cubic cm
The answer is somehow f (1600 cubic cm)
but I need help on how to figure it out an explain it.

2/3 * 5400 = ?
