Can you review the below solution and tell me if it is correct or the solution you provided is correct? Thanks.

Scale factor = Solid I : Solid II = 3 : 5

Solid I = 3

Solid II = 3 × (5/3)

[ Solid II = 5 m ]

A[I] / A[II] = ( h[I] / h[II] )²

54π / A[II} = ( 3 / 5 )²

54π / A[II] = 9/25

A[II] = (54π * 25) / 9

[ A[II] = 150π m² ]

V[I] / V[II] = ( h[I] / h[II] )³

V[I] / 259π = ( 3 / 5 )³

V[I] / 259π = 27/125

V[I] = (259π * 27) / 125

[ V[I] = 55.944π m³ ]

correct except the units of measurement

the remaining expressions are wrong since you should have used the scale factor in comparison to the area and the volume and not the height

and remember this question is worth 4\$

A[I] / A[II] = ( h[I] / h[II] )²

54π / A[II} = ( 3 / 5 )²

54π / A[II] = 9/25

A[II] = (54π * 25) / 9

[ A[II] = 150π m² ]

V[I] / V[II] = ( h[I] / h[II] )³

V[I] / 259π = ( 3 / 5 )³

V[I] / 259π = 27/125

V[I] = (259π * 27) / 125

[ V[I] = 55.944π m³ ]
