How would i start this off? 2. The height of one square pyramid is 12 m. A similar pyramid has a height of 9 m. The volume of the larger pyramid is 64 m3. Determine each of the following, showing all your work and reasoning: a.) Scale factor of the smaller pyramid to the larger pyramid in simplest form b.) Ratio of the areas of the bases of the smaller pyramid to the larger pyramid c.) Ratio of the volume of the smaller pyramid to the larger pyramid d.) Volume of the smaller pyramid

scale factor smaller to larger = 1: 12/9

Oh i see you take the smaller height and larger height

Do you reduce after that too because it says simplest form?

yes i guess it would be better to write it as 9:12 - now divide both numbers by 3 to give 3:4

I see

  • welshfella
now the ratios of the area will be the squares of these number 3^2 : 4^2
Jupiter500
  • Jupiter500
So it's the simplest form of the scale factor and then you square those numbers
welshfella
  • welshfella
yes - i leave you to work out the squares then the volume ratio will be 3^3 : 4^3

  • Jupiter500
Oh okay. Ya i can do the squares.

to find the volume of the smallest pyramid you can wirite 2 fractions |dw:1433873539452:dw|

Find x

So like the ratio would be 3^3 which would be 24 and 4^3 which would be 64 for c?

27:64 yes

alright cool and then the last one i need to solve for the smaller pyramid
welshfella
  • welshfella
yes x is the volume of smaller pyramid
welshfella
  • welshfella
no your calculations are wrong somewhere its eas y if you write it this way |dw:1433874159799:dw|
Jupiter500
  • Jupiter500
it would be 27
welshfella
  • welshfella
yea
welshfella
  • welshfella
thats ok
