64 : 125 cube both sides 4: 5

Wait your saying 4:5 is the answer? How'd you get it?

JuanitaMBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
no take the cube of 64 and 125 in order to get 4 and 5 respectively. yes. 4 and 5 are the answers.

JuanitaMBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
remeber ratios are like simplified equivalents. as long as you do the same to both numbers

I kind a get it. I'm not 100% sure of what you said but sort of.

your saying 64^3 and 125^3 = 4:5?

oh the square root! Thank you okay I get it. Sorry I'm a more visual learner. Thank you!

JuanitaMBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
no cube root  that is a 3 not 2

I have another question: A rectangular prism is truncated removing 20% of its height. The original height of the prism was 100 inches and it has a length of 5 inches and a width of 10 inches. What is the volume of the truncated prism?

I don't get what this question is asking me.
 2 years ago

JuanitaMBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
first, note the issue with height  it was orgiinally 100 and was reduced by 20% to 80
 2 years ago

JuanitaMBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
lenght and width were not reduced now just plug into the equation and you will get your volume

horray! thank you its 4,000 inches cubed

Alright I have another question:A triangular prism has a volume of 10 cm3. If each dimension of the prism is multiplied by four, what is the new volume of the prism?
 2 years ago

JuanitaMBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
:) yes you are correct

Can you help me solve this: A triangular prism has a volume of 10 cm3. If each dimension of the prism is multiplied by four, what is the new volume of the prism?

Thanks, btw what does ach stand for?

Gotta another one for you: Each dimension of a rectangular prism is increased by 10%. What percent of the original volume is the volume of the new prism?

I have one more and I just need and example of what how to do this so I can create my own authentic answer. Okay here it is:Part 1: Create and provide the dimensions for two similar figures of your choosing. Part 2: What is the similarity ratio of these figures along with the ratio of their surface area and volume? Part 3: Show your work, either using the actual volumes or using the formula, that the volume ratio is true.

JuanitaMBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
1. easier is rectangular prism make the dimenstions of one and then multiply by 2 to get the dimeensions of the 2nd one

Ok so something like this?dw:1330626458327:dw
 2 years ago

evergirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay that was easy. but how about part 2?

evergirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Part 2: What is the similarity ratio of these figures along with the ratio of their surface area and volume?
 2 years ago

JuanitaMBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
set up ratios of L W H for both figures answers will simplfy to 1: 2
 2 years ago

evergirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So you're saying the ratios of both of these prisms is 1:2? Because is twice as big as the other?
 2 years ago

JuanitaMBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
yesyes  all sides are ahve that same ratios since you multiple all sides by 2
 2 years ago

evergirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so i guess that only leaves part tres

Here it is in case you don't remember: Part 3: Show your work, either using the actual volumes or using the formula, that the volume ratio is true.

Wait one second please. Before we go on to three I think there's one thing we didn't finish answering in two. That was: What was the ratio of their surface area and volume?
 2 years ago

evergirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
(the two rectangular prisms)
 2 years ago

evergirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I think you said that their similarity ratio was 1 : 2. But now I have to find the ratio of their surface area and volume.

I'm doing the same thing now and thank you but evergirl it's kinda cheating when you ask for every single question... lol but I guess google isn't that fair either ;P
