Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so basically it's asking what dimensions you will have after you scale it. So the first one is supposed to be 2 times as large as your original. You are given surface area of your original shape and the volume of your original shape. What do you have to do to scale the shape properly?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well lets think about it. Lets say you have a flat square that is 2 foot length by 2 foot width. This square has a surface area of 4 feet squared.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now if you increased your dimensions by 2, you would have a 4 feet x 4 feet square. This would give us 16 feet squared as our surface area. If you see, 16 is simply 4 squared.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By increased dimensions i mean multiplied by 2 to double it's dimensions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So since our length and width was doubled, our original area was squared to give us our new surface area.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok forget what I said. If we are doubling our dimensions we need to actually multiply our surface area that we are given by 4. Sorry about that it's been a long time since I've done this stuff.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So we would multiply 208pi by 4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so that would be the surface area?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And for the Volume we need to multiply by a factor of eight since we are scaling by 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes that is your surface area.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The units of surface area will be inches squared in this case, and Volume will be inches cubed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok the cone is a 3:4 scale, which means we are enlarging the object by a factor of 1/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually it's a factor of 4/3. Now since your scale factor is 4/3, you will square 4/3 for the number you need to multiply your original area to find your new area.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And for your volume, you need to cube 4/3 to find your number that you need to multiply your original volume by to get your new volume.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it would be 96pi times (4/3) squared. To square 4/3 you just square the top and bottom. You would get 16/9. so 96pi * (16/9)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sure. and for the volume we cube (4/3) and multiply it by our original volume.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well 4 cubed over 3 cubed

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then for volume i get 714.52cm cubed
