Cyndy is wrapping a present that is in a cylinder-shaped box. The cylinder was enlarged by a scale factor of 4. The new volume is 2240 cubic units. What was the volume of the original cylinder?

Each dimension was enlarged 4 times....so....since a cylinder is a three dimensional object, the original volume was  (1/4)^3 of the enlarged volume = (1/64)*2240  = 35 cubic units
