Each dimension is scaled by 1/10?

how do we find the volume to start with?

Height x width x length

good, so 75 = lwh now what happens when we divide each linear measure by 10? V = l/10 * w/10 * h/10

I don't Know Im sorry

\[V=\frac{l}{10}\frac{w}{10}\frac{h}{10}=\frac{lwh}{10^3}\] but we are told what lwh equals already, its 75 so what is the value of the new Volume?

each of three dimensions gets scaled down by \(1/10\), so the volume scales by \((1/10)^3=1/10^3=\dots\)

if its scaled down by 1/10, doesnt that mean that we have 9/10 to deal with in the volume?

L 7 1/2 over 10 w 4 over 10 h 2 1/2 over 10

the actual numbers for l,h, and w are irrelevant. lwh = 75 if we scale down by 1/10 ... thats the trouble spot to read thru. it reads to me as: (1 - 1/10) is our scale factor. so instead of altering it by (.10)^3 we would be altering it by (.90)^3 the question is, how correct is my thinking?
