3.1 Area and Volume Ratios We can also express the relationship between areas by using scales.

Length Scale: 1:1

Length Scale: 2:1

Length Scale: 3:1

Area Scale: 1^{2}:1= 1:1

Area Scale: 2^{2}:1= 4:1

Area Scale: 3^{2}:1 = 9:1

We can then draw the conclusion that:

Volume Scale In the same way that there is an area scale, there is also a volume scale.

Volume Scale: 1^{3}:1= 1:1

Volume Scale: 2^{3}:1= 8:1

Volume Scale: 3^{3}:1= 27:1

Conclusion:
