Sam raked 16 bags of leafs in 8 hours. if he worked at a constant rate, how long did it take him to rake 3 bags
16 bags/ 8 hours = 3 bags/hour
3 bags/hour*3 bags=9 hours
so you would divide 16(bags) by 8(hours) in order to figure out how long it took to rake 1 bag. which would be 2 hours for 1 bag. to find out how long it took to collect 3 bags you would multiply 2(hours) times 3(number of bags) which would give you 6.
we are to find the similarity ratio of a cube with volume to a cube with volume .
we know the formula for the ratio of two cubes:
where is the similarity ratio of the two cubes.
substituting the given values in the formula to find :
therefore, the similarity ratio of the two cubes is 3/5.
