Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.264 : 125 cube both sides 4: 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait your saying 4:5 is the answer? How'd you get it?

JuanitaM

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I kind a get it. I'm not 100% sure of what you said but sort of.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your saying 64^3 and 125^3 = 4:5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh the square root! Thank you okay I get it. Sorry I'm a more visual learner. Thank you!

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't get what this question is asking me.

JuanitaM

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

JuanitaM

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright 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?

JuanitaM

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

evergirl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks, btw what does ach stand for?

evergirl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Gotta 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?

evergirl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.21. easier is rectangular prism make the dimenstions of one and then multiply by 2 to get the dimeensions of the 2nd one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so something like this?dw:1330626458327:dw

evergirl

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

evergirl

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

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

evergirl

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

JuanitaM

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

evergirl

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

evergirl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait 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?

evergirl
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(the two rectangular prisms)

evergirl

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'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
