A certain cake recipe states that the cake should be baked in a pan 8 inches in diameter. If Jules wants to use the recipe to make a cake of the same depth but 12 inches in diameter, by what factor should he multiply the recipe ingredients?

First, know that this is a circular pan with a certain height (...so cylindrical i guess...)

Just compare the ratio of the volumes of the two cakes, we will call the desired height H.

Remember pi * r^2 * H is the volume

First: 16 pi * H

Second: 36 pi * H

The instructions calculate the ingredients based on the first pan measurement, so you must multiply them by 36/16 (answer prob reduces this to 9/4) for them to work for the second.

What do they mean by the "same Depth"?

How do we know height is constant?

To me, "same depth" implies that height is constant. If you stick your finger in the 8 inch cake it will go as far in as if you did the 12 in. cake. - that is depth, and in this case when you model the cylinder, it is height.
