Help plsss!! I’d rlly appreciate it :]

(You don’t have to answer all of them but I rlly need the first question!!)

The Apple iPad Mini 2 has dimensions of: Height: 7.9 in, Width: 5.30 in, Depth: 0.30 in.

1. What is the volume of the Apple iPad Mini 2?

2. If Pear-Apple applies a scale factor of 1.25 to the iPad Mini 2 to make a new tablet, what would be the new volume in cubic inches?

3. Suppose Pear-Apple applies a scale factor of .75 to the iPad Mini 2 to make the Lil Mini. What would be the volume for the Lil Mini in cubic inches.

4. Pear-Apple scraps their plans and decide to come up with a product that is half the volume of the iPad Mini. What scale factor should they use and what should the dimensions be?

5. Pear-Apple also wants to make a bigger tablet. They want the tablet to have twice the volume from the iPad Mini 2. What’s the scale factor and dimensions of the tablet?

The volume of the Apple iPad Mini 2 is 12.561 in³.

The new volume of the Pear-Apple is 24.53 in³.

The new volume of the Pear-Apple is 5.3in³.

The scale factor to have a volume that is half that of the iPad Mini is 0.79.

The scale factor to have a volume that is double that of the iPad Mini is 1.26

What is the volume of the Apple iPad Mini 2?

Volume  = length x width x height

7.9 x 5.30 x 0.30 = 12.561 in³

What is the volume after the scale factors are applied?

Dimensions after the 1.25 scale factor is applied: (1.25 x 7.9) x (1.25 x 5.30) x (1.25 x 0.3)

= 9.875 x 6.625 x0.375 = 24.53 in³

Dimensions after the 0.75 scale factor is applied: (0.75 x 7.9) x (0.75 x 5.30) x (0.75 x 0.3)

= 5.925 x 3.975 x 0.225 = 5.3in³

Scale factor to have a volume that is double that of the iPad Mini : $$2^{1/3}$$ = 1.26

Scale factor to have a volume that is half that of the iPad Mini : $$0.5^{1/3}$$ = 0.79
