How do I solve this problem?
The volumes of two cylindrical cans of the same shape vary directly as the cubes of their radii. If a can with a sixinch radius holds 1½ pints, how many gallons will a similar can with a 24inch radius hold?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lets suppose Volume of Can A = k*r^3 volume of can B = k*R^3 where R= 24 and r=6 we want to see how many of Can A fit in can B so we know hoiw many pints or gallons go in there

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let Vol_A be the volume of can with radius r = 6 inches Vol_A=k*r^3 Vol_A is varying with respect to r^3 so some constant k times r^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let Vol_B be the volume of can with radius R=24 inches Vol_B=k*R^3 Vol_B is varying with respect to R^3 so some constant k(notice same constant) times R^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now what we want to know is how many times bigger volume B is than volume A

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then we will know how many of Vol_A will fit in volume_B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we know how many times bigger the volume of B is than A then we know how many of A will fit in B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in the same way u have VolB= k*R^3 volA=k*r^3 how many A fit in B?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You know, without knowing the numbers, it makes me unsure, but if I had to guess, I'd just divided the two K x r^3
