What is the scale factor between two prisms that have a volume of 100 cubic feet and 12,500 cubic feet?

The scale factor usually refers to linear dimension scaling, so given the fact that volumes scale as the cube of linear distance, take the cube root of the ratio of the two volumes:  \(^3\sqrt{\frac{12500}{100}}=5\text{ ft}\)
