Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let 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 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let'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 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0edge = L (edge)*(edge)*(edge) = edge^3 replace "edge" with "L"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0edge = 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, 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 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(1/2)L*(1/2)*L*(1/2)L = (1/8)*__^3 fill in the blank you forgot to include the L
