1. A cone has a radius of 40 cm and a volume of 1875 cm^3. what is the volume of a similar cone with a radius of 16 cm.

A: 120 cm^3
B: 300 cm^3
C: 75 cm^3
D: 750^3

I know the answer is A but could someone explain how to do the problem.

1. volume is proportional to length cubed for similar geometry
2 times length is 4 times area
2 times length is 8 times volume

so
1875(16/40)^3 = 1875(.064) = 120cm^3
