    It said that each dimension was increased by 30%. That means that the new width is 100% of the old width plus another 30 %. That means the the new width is 130% of the old width.

    So I converted 130% to a decimal and multiplied the old width by 1.3. That is the new width. Then I did the same with the length and height.
