# The Answer to Penny Pincher's Icy Boost Blocks

### For the 1st Question:

### For the 2nd Question:

Since Penny's icy boost blocks are usually **2 feet high, 4 feet wide & 4 feet thick,** the volume is **2 ft. × 4 ft. × 4 ft. = 32 cubic feet.**

### For the 3rd Question:

Since Penny's icy boost blocks are usually **2 feet high, 4 feet wide & 4 feet thick,** the surface area is **4(2 ft. × 4 ft.) + 2 × 4**^{2} ft. = 4 × 8 square feet + 2 × 16 square feet = 32 square feet + 32 square feet = 64 square feet.

## Extra Information: The surface-area-to-volume ratio is 2:1! That's 2 square feet per cubic foot.
