Answer:
Question 25. Ratio of areas = [tex]\frac{9}{256}[/tex] and ratio of volumes = [tex]\frac{27}{4096}[/tex]
Question 26. Surface area of smaller solid is 144 m²
Stepbystep explanation:
Question 25. The scale factor of two similar solids is 3 : 16.
We have to find out the ratio of their corresponding areas and volumes.
Since area is two dimensional unit, means area can be represented as multiplication of two dimensions.
If their sides are in the ratio of 3 : 16 then the ratio of their area will be = [tex]\frac{3^{2} }{16^{2}}=\frac{9}{256}[/tex]
Similarly volume is three dimensional means it represents multiplication of three dimensions.
So the ratio of their volumes = [tex]\frac{3^{3} }{16^{3} }=\frac{27}{4096}[/tex]
Question 26. Volume of two similar solids are 1331 m³ and 216 m³
Surface area of the larger solid is 484 m² then we have to find the surface area of the smaller solid.
As we have done in question number 25, ratio of dimensions of two solids will be = [tex]\sqrt[3]{\frac{1331}{216}}=\frac{11}{6}[/tex]
Since we have calculated the ratio of dimensions of two solids so ratio of their area will be = [tex]\frac{11^{2} }{6^{2}}=\frac{121}{36}[/tex]
Now we will use this ratio to determine the value of surface area of the smaller solid.
[tex]\frac{121}{36}=\frac{484}{x}[/tex]
By cross multiplication
(121).x = (36).(484)
[tex]x=\frac{(36).(484)}{121}[/tex]
x = 36×4 = 144 m²
Option C. is correct.
