Main Idea/Vocabulary similar solids Find dimensions, surface area, and volume of similar solids.

Example 1 Find Missing Linear Measures These cones are similar. What is the radius of Cone A to the nearest tenth? Since the two cones are similar, the ratios of their corresponding linear measures are proportional. Words Variable Equation

Example 1 Find Missing Linear Measures Write the proportion. Divide each side by 12. Answer: The radius of cone A is about 4.7 centimeters. Find the cross products. Multiply. Simplify.

Example 2 Find Surface Area of a Similar Solid These rectangular prisms are similar. Find the total surface area of Prism A. The ratio of the measures of prism A to prism B is

Example 2 Find Surface Area of a Similar Solid Answer: The surface area of prism A is 846 square inches. Write a proportion. Substitute the known values. Let S represent the surface area. Simplify. Find the cross products. Divide each side by 4. Simplify.
