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 $$8$$.
