    If two solids are similar, the cube of their scale factor is equal to the ratio of their volumes. In this problem, 4/12 or 1/3 is the scale factor.

    The cube of (1/3) = 24/V where V is the volume of the larger prism.

    (1/3)^3 = 24/V Solve the equation for V.

    (1/3)^3 = 24/V 1/27 = 24/V Cross multiply: V = 27 * 24 V = ? @not_so_smart Just multiply those two numbers.
