If two solids are similar, then their corresponding sides are all proportional. The ratio of their surface areas is the side ratio squared and note that the ratios of the areas does not give the actual surface areas. The volume ratio for the two solids is the side length ratio raised to the third power. Again, this is not the solids' volume, only the ratio of the volumes.
