Sculpt Big or Sculpt Small ?
sculptor has the moulds to cast similar solid bronze figures of height either 20
cm or 40 cm. She can sell these figures for £30 and £150 respectively. If her
main cost is the cost of the bronze, which size figure is it more profitable for
her to make ?
difference might it make to your advice if the figures were hollow ?
2 such hollow figures were made, in the unlikely – but simple ! – forms of
cubes 20 cm and 40
out of 1 cm thick bronze, then how much bronze would be required in each case,
and what would be the relevant ratio ?
advice would you give the sculptor ?
What difference would it make to your advice if the
figures were still cast in 1 cm thick bronze, but were only
4 cm and 8 cm high ?
