    how do you work out the length of the smaller or bigger one?
    e.g the shapes are similar. the volumes are given and 1 length.
    work out other length, x, in cm to 1 d.p

    Thanks for the info,

    however, you should also include the relationships that the scale, volume and area scale factors have with each other. Otherwise this was quite helpful.

    Mathematically, how do we get from AREA to VOLUME?

    • Belle Washington says:

      Scale Factor is written as a:b

      Surface Area is written as a^2:b^2 because it is a two-dimensional property

      Volume is written as a^3:b^3 because it is a three-dimensional property

    If both volume of smaller and larger geometrically object is given without any length given , how to find the height ?

    How would I use the scale factor found between the two volumes to find the surface area of one of them?
