Spaghetti sauce comes in large and small cylindrical cans. The larger can has a radius and height that are both three times longer than the radius and height of the smaller can. If the volume of the smaller can is 35.28in3, what is the volume of the larger can?
a.952.56 in3
b.211.68in3
c.105.84in3
d.317.52in3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can B has dimensions 3 times larger than Can A so the two cans are similar, meaning that Can B's volume is 3^3 = 27 times larger than Can A's volume

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you're not sure about that fact, why not come up with random numbers for dimensions of can A. Triple them to get the dimensions for can B dw:1436842347671:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0find the volume of can A and can B. Then divide (volume of can B)/(volume of can A). You should get a result of 27 (or close to it)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you should have found that volume of can B = 27*(volume of can A) volume of can B = 27*(35.28) volume of can B = 952.56
