exactly Amir, when going from 1:4 to 1:6 the
scale is not doubled and the volume is not multipied 8 times. The ratio of the
two scales is 3:2 and ratio of volumes is 3.37 :1 or in integer
numbers 27:8 = cube of 3 : cube of 2 = (3 x 3 x 3) : (2 x 2 x 2), or
so I think.
I therefore, divided the .935 with 3.375, not with
8.

Hang on, there's a missing step 1:1 is 60 1:2 is 7.5 1:4 is .935 1:6 is ____ Careful, going from 2 -> 4 isn't the same as going from 4 -> 6. The important concept is that volume is cubic (3 dimensions). |
