Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Smallest candle volume is: pi*(1/2)^2 * 3 cubic inches Smallest candle volume is: (3/4)pi cubic inches The scale factors go to both radius and height so that the one with a scale factor of 2 will have a volume 8 times the original and the one with a scale factor of 3 will have a volume 27 times the original 27 + 8 + 1 = 36 36 * (3/4)pi cubic inches = 27 pi cubic inches .
