Wasn't it 1727 as it said how much times bigger or mabey I'm just wrong

Nah cut it was to do with linear scale factors and are scale factors

i got like
1:12 for linear
so cube them and you get
1:1728 and then to get from one to 1728 you multiply by 1728
Your right!
Any other questions??

The function question?

Any other questions??
The ice cream one confused me because it said that the cornet was the hemisphere on top of the cone, and later asked you to work out the volume of the cornet, despite giving you the formula and values for the cone too. I and everyone else I've spoken to calculated the volume for both the cone and cornet.

The cornet was the cone and the hemisphere

Yes, yes! IMO the only hard question was the washing powder one
