The volume of a can is 28.3 cubic inches (in.^3). If the radius and the height of the can are multiplied by a scale factor of 2, what is the volume of the new can?

Please tell me how you got to the answer, this kind of material will be in my test tomorrow.. x.x

- anonymous

What kind of can? I assume it is is a Cylinder but...

- anonymous

It just says that, so I would assume it's a cylinder. =P

So yeah lol

- anonymous

Well the volume of a cylinder is pi*r^2*h.

- anonymous

When something is multiplied by a factor you replace the ariable by that same factor.

- anonymous

So... replace r with 2, that's all?

- anonymous

And h. Do you understand why?

- anonymous

ahh sorry word problems get me. No I don't.

- anonymous

When you scale something or multiplying by a factor you are basically saying "two times more than the original value" .

- anonymous

Does that make sense?

- anonymous

So when I say I multiply by a factor of 5 I am basically saying "Take your original value and multiply by 5"

- anonymous

Somewhat. So in some case, just guessing, it'd be like half of the original amount given? 28.3? or... x.x; lol I mean I get I have to replace it and why now

- anonymous

Or for instance, when I say I multiply something by a factor of 7 I am saying "Take your original number and replace it by 7 times the original value" .

- anonymous

I got 25.12 just now.

- anonymous

So, basically when multiplying by a factor, you replace the other numbers? in this case the radius and the height?

- anonymous

Yeah. Replace it by whatever factor times that number.

- anonymous

so 25.12 would be wrong i suppose haha.. xD?

- anonymous

Sorry.. I learned this all before, but since it's a new teacher he shows us in a different way, and it's getting me all confused.. :/

- anonymous

Well The volume is directly proportional to the height and the radius squared. So If you increases the radius and height by a certain factor the Volume increases by the same factor.

- anonymous

Does that make sense?

- anonymous

honestly? still kinda lost. :|

- anonymous

Okay. Tell me what you don't understand.

- anonymous

- anonymous

2 > r / h lol

- anonymous

No.... :P .

- anonymous

the thing i dont get is.. i get lost after they say the radius and height of the can are multiplied by the factor of 2

- anonymous

blehh xD

- anonymous

and i know 28.3 is the volume of the can

- anonymous

but im confused if ill need to use 28.3 # at all or just work out a certain equation
like you said replace with the other things
in my case i think this:
3.14(2)^2(2)

- anonymous

Yeah you will use the 28.3

- anonymous

Here Maybe a picture will help.

- anonymous

kk

- anonymous

|dw:1359091625314:dw|

- anonymous

oh i see, but.. then what's the radius? o.o

- anonymous

|dw:1359091742557:dw|

- anonymous

That's a badly drawn r XD .

- anonymous

XD! It's okay I understand. And I appreciate the help thanks a lot. i got a test tomorrow.. ><

- anonymous

and that teacher teaching his ways just gets me confused all the time, i mostly teach myself instead xD

- anonymous

Did you understand me though?

- anonymous

somewhat, im confused as to what happened to r and pi though xD

- anonymous

and why group in the replaced 2 with the r if you'll be replacing it?

- anonymous

The pi is still there. I replaced the radius with 2r because we are multiplying the radius by a factor of 2.

- anonymous

so pretty much just leave the r alone, and just leave it aside and continue the problem?

- anonymous

as well as with pi? and just multiply the new factors 8 and 28.3

- anonymous

right?

- anonymous

No... :P . Rather replace the r by 2r because we are multiplying the r by a factor of 2 and then square the resultant.

- anonymous

oh i see. ok, but that doesn't explain why pi is practically gone lol

- anonymous

No no. The pi is there. We can't multiply pi by a factor because pi is a fixed, constant number.

- anonymous

ohh okay.

- anonymous

Does that make sense?

- anonymous

yes. thank you. xD

- anonymous

sorry if i got you frustrated haha.. =X

- anonymous

Nope :) .

- anonymous

:D

- anonymous

can ya help me with another one? similar stuff just finding the area of complex and irregular figures

- anonymous

Erm... Maybe.

- anonymous

dont gotta lol just asking if you can or want to.

- anonymous

No I mean, I might not be able to solve it.

- anonymous

But go ahead.

- anonymous

Oh , kk, uhm it's just algebra all the same. here it goes.
A rectangular mirror is 24 inches by 48inches. The frame around the mirror is 3inches. wide. Find the area of the mirror including the frame.

- anonymous

I multiplied 24 and 48 and got 1,152 but that would just be the mirror's area. I also need the frames

- anonymous

Did you draw a picture?

- anonymous

Mhm. I shaded the frame to make it look differently. But i also tried multiplying all numbers and it doesn't add up

- anonymous

and i get a bit confused sometimes with this book with the problems cause sometimes they're 3 dimensional lol

- anonymous

and i mix up as to where to put the numbers on what side or what not

- anonymous

idk if im just messing myself up honestly haha

- anonymous

What's the answer?

- anonymous

like i said i got 1152 lol

- anonymous

I think it's 1,620 inches ^2 .

- anonymous

dunno what i missed

- anonymous

Here look at this picture.

|dw:1359093139215:dw|

- anonymous

|dw:1359093195504:dw|

- anonymous

So you're sharing all 3s down the middle? and breaking em down? to add 6 to both 24 and 48?

- anonymous

yeah because we are given the frame is 3 inches wide right? So it's 3 inches wide everywhere. Does that make sense?

- anonymous

yes it does thank you very much, once again. :)

- anonymous

Welcome!

- anonymous

time to finish hw, bye, take care and i fan'd ya. :P
