Two boxes are shaped like cubes. Each edge of the smaller box is 1/2 the length of the corresponding edge of the larger box. The larger box will hold. How many times as much sand as the larger box ? Plz help !!

    let L = length of the edge for the large box let (1/2)L = length of the edge for the small box volume = (length of edge)^3 large box volume/small box volume = ?

    ^ means exponent so x^3 means x*x*x

    let's just find the volume of the large box first, ok? edge of large box = L volume = edge^3 = (edge)*(edge)*(edge) volume of large box = ?

    edge = L (edge)*(edge)*(edge) = edge^3 replace "edge" with "L"

    edge = L volume = (edge)^3 to find volume, replace the word "edge" with "L" volume of large box = L^3 now do the same thing with the small box

    no, I don't know where you're getting 3 from... edge = (1/2)L volume = edge^3 = (1/2)L*(1/2)L*(1/2)L = ?

    (1/2)L*(1/2)*L*(1/2)L = (1/8)*__^3 fill in the blank you forgot to include the L
