8. The total volume V of the real house is that of a triangular prism (of height h =3 . 0 m and base area A =20 × 12 = 240 m 2 ) in addition to a rectangular box (height h 0 =6 . 0 m and same base). Therefore, V = 1 2 hA + h 0 A = µ h 2 + h 0 A = 1800 m 3 . (a) Each dimension is reduced by a factor of 1 / 12, and we Fnd
