 07-07-2007 #13 Jain Guest   Posts: n/a surface area is proportional to sidestherefore the ratio of surface areas would be(2)^2 : (5)^2=4:25Ans.(b)
 07-07-2007 #14 ankur k Guest   Posts: n/a answer is B that is 4:25 ...............since ,you have mentioned that the square has an edge so it is a cube .now the surface area is 6(L)(L).then ratio of surface area is = square of the edge length.so ,ratio is 4:25
