Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Given the scale factor say 3:5 the small solid refers to the 3, the large to the 5 set up a ratio 3/5 = smallVolume/largeVolume cross multiply 3*largeVolume = 5*smallVolume largeVolume = 5/3 * smallVolume Now just use the scale factors in the problems and the volume/sa provided

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok fractions are parts of a whole just think of scale factors as fractions Fractions i have one pizza with 8 slices one slice is a part of the whole pizza the size of one slice is 1/8 of pizza two slices is 2/8 of pizza four slices is 4/8 of pizza ... if i have four slices that means i have 1/2 the pizza because 4 is one half of 8 Now if i double my portion, i multiply 4 slices * 2=8 slices=whole pizza the scale factor here is 1:2, 1pizza = 2 portions ... i dont know if that helped at all, but find someone to help you understand fractions it is VERY important

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i did above "given scale factor m:n large = small*(n/m) " scale 1:2 smallVolume = 100 largeVolume = (100)*(2/1) = 200
