    A triangular prism has a volume of\[V=\frac{1}{2}bhl.\]If we reduce each dimension by half, then\[V_{\text{new}}=\frac{1}{2}\frac{b}{2}\frac{h}{2}\frac{l}{2}=\frac{1}{16}bhl.\]What do you think?

    I'm not sure. I think it could be something like 8 or 16...?

    The answer is that the volume is reduced by a factor of \(8\).
