Are the ratios of the side lengths similar?

16-----> 40   is a scale factor of  40/16 = 2.5

is the other side scaled by the SAME factor?

12------>30      scale factor is  30/12 = 2.5

 

Yes , they are similar.

 

Area x height = volume

area of right triangle = 1/2 leg1 x leg2

 

R one  volume =  1/2 x 30 x 40    x  height  = 600h

L one volume   =  1/2 x 12 x 16    x  height  =  96h

     the one on the R will have greater volume   600h/96h = 6.25 times greater volume
