  1. The surface area of two similar figures or solids is proportional to the square of the ratio of linear dimensions.

    From
    "The larger box has a length, width, and height that are twice those of the smaller box"
    we conclude that the ratio of linear dimensions is 2.
    2²=4.
    What is 4*260?
