### How do you find the direct proportion between volume and surface area of a cube?

To tackle this you first need to know the equations for both
volume and surface area. The surface area of a cube is 6x2 where x
is the side length. The volume of the cube is x3. Thus x is the
cube root of the volume. We can substitute this in to the surface
area equation and say that the surface area of a cube is
6volume2/3
This can also be rearranged to say that the volume of the cube
is (the...
