given 3 + 5 - x² + 4 - 9x
the degree of a term is determined by the value of its exponent.
a term of degree 5 has an exponent of 5
in the polynomial given this term is 4
with a coefficient of 4 → c
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.
19.75 / 5 * 9
