Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, so 75 = lwh now what happens when we divide each linear measure by 10? V = l/10 * w/10 * h/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[V=\frac{l}{10}\frac{w}{10}\frac{h}{10}=\frac{lwh}{10^3}\] but we are told what lwh equals already, its 75 so what is the value of the new Volume?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0each of three dimensions gets scaled down by \(1/10\), so the volume scales by \((1/10)^3=1/10^3=\dots\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if its scaled down by 1/10, doesnt that mean that we have 9/10 to deal with in the volume?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the 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?
