A container 8cm high has a volume 60cm3. Find the volume of a similar container ...



Dicussion (1)

  • Volume = Area × Height
    Area = \(\cfrac{\text{volume}}{\text{height}}\)
    Area of first container = \(\cfrac{\text{Volume}}{\text{height}}\)
    \(\cfrac{60\text{cm}^3}{8\text{cm}}\) = 7.5cm2
    Volume of similar container with height of 40cm
    = (7.5 × 40)cm3 = 300cm3
