Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Areas are proportional to the square of the ratios, and volumes, cubes. Example: scale factor: 2:5 ratio of areas: 2^2:5^2 =4:25 ratio of volumes : 2^3 : 5^3 = 8 : 125 This is because for areas, we multiply together two dimensional units, and for volumes, three.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Recall that if the linear dimensions of two similar solids are in ratio a:b, then their surface areas are in ratio a^2:b^2 and their volumes are in ratio a^3:b^3... Since the side lengths of two similar solids are in ratio 3:7, their volumes are in ratio 3^3:11^3 = 27:1331..... ok @sue101
