Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2When you say scaled down by 1/10 do you mean that a side that was 10 is now 1 or that a side that was 10 is now 9?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Then I think they are trying to teach you this general principle: If you multiply all dimensions of a rectangular prism by 2, the volume will be 2^3 times as big.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So since each dimension becomes 1/10 its original value, and since (1/10)^3 = 1/1000, the new volume is 1/1000 times the original volume.
