Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\bf \begin{array}{llll} &area&volume \\\hline\\ \textit{scale factor}=\cfrac{side1}{side2}=&\cfrac{(side1)^2}{(side2)^2}=&\cfrac{(side1)^3}{(side2)^3} \end{array}\) what do you think?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@jdoe0001 i keep getting 0.15 but thats not a fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right... wondering where the 0.15 is coming from you're not using a calculator by any chance? the result will be a fraction btw and yes, a calculator will give you the decimal form but get the fraction firstly what do you get for \(\bf \cfrac{1.6^3}{3^3}?\)
