Volume of cube \(= x^3\) units ---------- (x is the side of cube)

Volume of the real sculpture is \(64 m^3\)\(= (4^3)m^3\)

Therefore side of real sculpture is \(4 m\).

Scale model of a cube sculpture is 0.5 cm per every 1 m of the real sculpture. Let the side of model be x.

\(0.5cm -- 1 m\)
\(x cm -- 4m\)

Cross multiplying the above we get;

\(x = 2 cm\)

Therefore volume of model \(= 2^3 = 8 cm^3\) . Answer (B)...

As 0.5 cm represents 1 m, then 1\(m^3\) is represented by \(0.5^3 cm^3\) or 0.125 \(cm^3\)

Therefore 64\(m^3\) is represented by 64 x 0.125 \(cm^3\) = 8 \(cm^3\)

A. 64 cm3
B. 8 cm3
C. 2 cm3
D. 4 cm3
E. 16 cm3


Since we have 0.5 cm per every 1 m, we can say:

(0.5 cm)^3 = (1 m)^3

0.125 cm^3 = 1 m^3

Thus, the volume of a model that is 64 m^3 is:

64 m^3 x 0.125 cm^3/1 m^3 = 64 x 0.125 = 8 cm^3

Answer: B
