#### Solution

Ratio in edges of two cubes = 3:2

Let edge of first cube = 3x

Then edge of second cube = 2x

(i) Now total surface area of first cube = 6 x (3x)2 = 6 x 9x2 = 54x2

and of surface area of second cube = 6 x (2x)2 = 6 x 4x2 = 24x2

Ratio = 54x2: 24x2 = 9:4

(ii) Volume of first cube = (3x)3 = 27x3

and second cube = (2x)3 = 8x3

Ratio = 27x3: 8x3 = 27 :8
