The ratio of the heights of two similar rectangular prisms is 3:4. What is the ratio of their lateral areas?

|dw:1331589209845:dw| The Surface Area of the prism = 2*L + 2*W + 2*H if the ratio of the two heights is 3:4 The ratio of the corresponding Lateral ares = \[the ratio of the corresponding areas = 9:16\] or 9/16 You would square the ratio because in surface area you are using two measurements (the base and the height)
