Did you figure it out?

 

Answer:  120,000,000 cubic inches

Solution:  The marshmallow man started at half a foot tall and grew to 100 feet tall, so his height was multiplied by 200. If he increased in size proportionally, his width and length also should be multiplied by 200. So, his new volume is 15 × 200 × 200 × 200 = 120,000,000 cubic inches.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you figure it out?

Answer:  90 minutes

Solution:  Since 3 miles goes into 4½ miles 1 times, it takes Peter and Ray 1½ hours to walk to the library. An hour is 60 minutes, so 1½ hours is 60 × 1½ = 90 minutes.
