You need information about a pre-image AND and image to work out a scale factor.

The linear scale factor is proportional to the cube root of the volumes.

Take the 'reciprocal' of the given scale factor to go the other way. The 'reciprocal' of a number is 1/(the number). 3 ==> 1/3 5 ==> 1/5 1/7 ==> 7 2/3 ==> 3/2 etc.

The ratio of the length of the side in the big triangle to the length of the corresponding side in the little triangle is the scale factor.

well.... first off you have to find the scale factor...

The two scale factors are reciprocals of one another.

The scale factor is the ratio of any side of the image and the corresponding side of the original figure.

Look for corresponding parts of the two figures. Their ratio is the scale factor. For example, if you have two similar triangles, one has a side of length 3, and the corresponding side on the other triangle is 5, then the scale factor is 5/3 going from the small triangle to the big, or 3/5 going from the big triangle to the small.
