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 = ?

@Vocaloid should I do 1/2 times 3

^ 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 = ?

  • anonymous
V= 27 ?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
edge = L (edge)*(edge)*(edge) = edge^3 replace "edge" with "L"

Kk

@Vocaloid I still dont understand
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
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

What does ^3 mean ???
anonymous
  • anonymous
Its an exponent ?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
yes...
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
x^3 = x*x*x
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
L^3 = L*L*L, etc....

Kk I got it now . whats the next step ?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
find the volume of the small box edge = (1/2)L volume = edge^3 = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Its 27 ? Since 3×3×3
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
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 = ?

@Vocaloid I got 1/8
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
you forgot the L L^3 = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah its equal to 1/8
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
(1/2)L*(1/2)*L*(1/2)L = (1/8)*__^3 fill in the blank you forgot to include the L
anonymous
  • anonymous
1/8L
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
still missing the exponent
anonymous
  • anonymous
V = 1/8³L ??
anonymous
  • anonymous
V = 1/8³L ??
