Last one before I head off to bed.....

 

(a)  They are similar because the corresponding sides are in the same ratio

 

36/30   = 48/40

6/5  = 6/5             

This is also the scale factor of the larger prism base to the smaller prism base  

 

(b)  If the prisms are the same height......the prism with base DEF will have a greater  volume

 

It will be (Scale Factor)^2   greater than the smaller prism  =  (6/5)^2  =  36/25  times as great 

 

 

cool cool cool
