    Do you know how to find the volume of a cylindrical object?

    You can assume the candles have rectangular shapes, or you can assume they have a cylindrical shape. Which one do you prefer?

    Volume for candle 1 is: V1=L*W*H = (6cm)(4cm)(10cm)=240 cubic centimeters. You try with Volume for candle 2

    According with Wikipedia, a ratio is a relationship between two numbers of the same kind[1] (i.e., objects, persons, students, spoonfuls, units of whatever identical dimension), usually expressed as "a to b" or a:b, sometimes expressed arithmetically as a dimensionless quotient of the two[2] which explicitly indicates how many times the first number contains the second (not necessarily an integer).[3] So we can say that the ratio r =V1/V2 =240/960=1/4

    or you can say V1 to V2 is 1/4. Likewise, you can state the same relationship as: V1:V2=1/4. Both express the same.
