Question #10400164

how do you find the ratio of lengths using the ratio of volumes with similar shapes?

for example, there are three similar jugs which hold 36 gallons, 9 gallons and 54 gallons. What is the ratio of their heights? I tried it out already, but my ratio had decimals (can a ratio have decimals?!) Could someone also explain it? Thanks :)
