How to convert the linear relationship to an area relationship and a volume relationship

There are several examples of converting from linear to area to volume and keeping the correct ratios

Application problems on surface area and volumeA balloon has a radius of 6in. Describe what happens to the balloon’s surface area if the balloon inflates and the radius changes to 12in.

Describe what happens to the same balloon’s volume if the radius is doubled

A sphere has a radius of 4 in. What happens to the sphere’s volume if the radius is halved?

A sphere has a radius of 8in. What happens to the sphere’s surface area if the radius is halved?
