Two similar solids have volumes of 576 in³ and 1125 in³. If the smaller solid has a side length of 12 inches, how long is the corresponding side in the larger solid (in inches)?

We  need to take the  cube root of the  ratio  of  the  volume of the larger solid to the smaller to  find the scale factor

 

So  we have   ∛ [ 1125 / 576  ]  = ∛  [ 125/64 ] =   5/4

 

So.....the correseponding side of the larger solid  =

 

Side length of the smaller solid  *  ( scale factor of larger solid to the smaller )

 

12  *  (5/4)  =

 

60  / 4  =

 

15  inches
