Lesson 17
Scaling One Dimension
Problem 1
A cylinder has a volume of \(48 \pi\) cm^{3} and height \(h\). Complete this table for volume of cylinders with the same radius but different heights.
height (cm)  volume (cm^{3}) 

\(h\)  \(48\pi\) 
\(2h\)  
\(5h\)  
\(\frac h2\)  
\(\frac h5\)

(From Unit 5, Lesson 15.)Problem 6
Lin’s smart phone was fully charged when she started school at 8:00 a.m. At 9:20 a.m., it was 90% charged, and at noon, it was 72% charged.

When do you think her battery will die?

Is battery life a function of time? If yes, is it a linear function? Explain your reasoning.
