1. Identify Similar Solids

Which of the following are similar solids?

2. Proof of the Relationships Between Scale Factor, Area Ratio and Volume Ratio

Use the following similar solids to prove the relationships between the scale factor, surface area ratio and volume ratio.

1. Given the Scale Factors, Find a Surface Area

Given two similar hemispheres. The radius of the smaller hemisphere is $5m$ and that of the larger hemisphere is $7m$. If the surface area of the larger hemisphere is $147m^{2}$, what is the surface area of the smaller hemisphere?

1. Given the Volumes, Find the Scale Factors

Given that the volumes of the two similar prisms are $729cm^{3}$ and $1331cm^{3}$ respectively. What is the scale factor of the smaller prism to the larger prism?

1. Scale Factors Doubled, Find a Volume

The dimensions of a pyramid figure with a volume of $24m^{3}$ have been doubled. What is the volume of the new pyramid figure?
