64 : 125
cube both sides
4: 5

- anonymous

cube 4 and 5?

- anonymous

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

no take the cube of 64 and 125 in order to get 4 and 5 respectively.
yes. 4 and 5 are the answers.

- anonymous

remeber ratios are like simplified equivalents. as long as you do the same to both numbers

- anonymous

Oh okay. Thanks.

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

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!

- anonymous

no cube root - that is a 3 not 2

- anonymous

right sorry I made typo

- anonymous

Np - as long as you understand it :)

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?

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

first, note the issue with height - it was orgiinally 100 and was reduced by 20% to 80

- anonymous

lenght and width were not reduced
now just plug into the equation and you will get your volume

- anonymous

uh huh I'm following

- anonymous

v = 80*5*10

- anonymous

I got the answer!!!!

- anonymous

horray! thank you its 4,000 inches cubed

- anonymous

am i right?

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?

- anonymous

:) yes you are correct

- anonymous

awesome :)

- anonymous

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?

- anonymous

Thanks, btw what does ach stand for?

- anonymous

lenght, width, height

- anonymous

Okay thanks.

- anonymous

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?

- anonymous

- anonymous

thank u!

- anonymous

uw

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.

- anonymous

1. easier is rectangular prism
make the dimenstions of one and then multiply by 2 to get the dimeensions of the 2nd one

- anonymous

Ok so something like this?|dw:1330626458327:dw|

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

And that's part one?

- anonymous

okay that was easy. but how about part 2?

- anonymous

Part 2: What is the similarity ratio of these figures along with the ratio of their surface area and volume?

- anonymous

set up ratios of L W H for both figures
answers will simplfy to 1: 2

- anonymous

So you're saying the ratios of both of these prisms is 1:2? Because is twice as big as the other?

- anonymous

yesyes - all sides are ahve that same ratios since you multiple all sides by 2

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

so i guess that only leaves part tres

- anonymous

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.

- anonymous

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?

- anonymous

(the two rectangular prisms)

- anonymous

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
