    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.

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

    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?

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

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

    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.

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

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

    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?
