Can you find two different methods to answer this question? LSF: A to B = 0. 8 ASF: A to B = (0. 8)2 = 0. 64 3. 27 x 0. 64 = 2. 0928 m 2

D A 24 cm 2 6 cm 2 B C E F Previously, we learned that the Area Scale Factor is found by dividing the area of the larger shape by the area of the smaller shape. We also found that there was a connection between the Linear Scale Factor and the Area Scale Factor: Area Scale Factor = (Linear Scale Factor)2

Volume Scale Factor • Consider this cube. • If we enlarge its dimensions by a linear scale factor of 2, how will that affect its volume? • On your whiteboards, can you draw the enlarged cube? • What is its volume? • Can you summarise how the Volume Scale Factor is connected to the Linear Scale Factor?

Volume Scale Factor How much bigger is Cube B compared to Cube A? m c 2 2 cm B 4 cm 2 cm A m c 4 4 cm A B Edge Length: 2 cm 4 cm Surface Area: 24 cm 2 96 cm 2 Total Volume: 8 cm 3 64 cm 3 SF 2 4 = 22 ? Knowing what you do about Length to Area Scale Factors, what can you say about extending this idea for the Volume Scale Factor?

Volume Scale Factor How much bigger is Cube B compared to Cube A? m c 2 2 cm B 4 cm 2 cm A m c 4 4 cm A B Edge Length: 2 cm 4 cm Surface Area: 24 cm 2 96 cm 2 Total Volume: 8 cm 3 64 cm 3 SF 2 4 = 22 8 = 23 The volume of B is eight times as big as A. The Volume Scale Factor is the cube of the linear scale factor.

Volume Scale Factor (VSF): The proportional increase in the volume of two similar shapes Volume Scale Factor = (Linear Scale Factor)3

Your Turn Example The smaller cylinder has a volume of 20 cm 3. 12 cm 4 cm Calculate the volume of the larger cylinder. The smaller cylinder has a volume of 10 cm 3. 12 cm 3 cm Calculate the volume of the larger cylinder.

On your whiteboards: You might like to set it out in a table to organise your values: Length (cm) P Q SF 5 15 3 Area (cm 2) Volume (cm 3) 9 60 1620 27
