    volume of 2 similar solids is proportional to the cube of their corresponding sides, so

    x/240 = 23^3/92^3 = (23/92)^3 = (1/4)^3 = 1/64
    64x = 240
    x = 3.75

    the new volume is 3.75 ft^3

    If I told you that the surface area of 2 similar solids is proportional to the square of their corresponding sides, can you set it up like I just did ?
    let me know what you got.
