Q:
# The cost of a candle varies directly with the volume of the candle. If a candle with a volume of 80 cm³ costs $12, what would be the cost of a candle with a volume of 120 cm³?

Accepted Solution

A:

If c represents that cost, then

.. 12/80 = c/120

.. c = 120*(12/80) = 18

The cost of the larger candle is $18.

.. 12/80 = c/120

.. c = 120*(12/80) = 18

The cost of the larger candle is $18.
