Cubirocks go!

Help three cuboid characters estimate and compare the volumes of cube-shaped rocks made by a special volcano in 'Cubiland'. Each character uses a different measuring unit: small, medium-sized or large. Notice that if 8 medium cubes and 27 small cubes fill a large cube that this ratio can be applied to all 'cubirocks'. Use ...
