## anonymous 4 years ago Each dimension of a rectangular prism is increased by 10%. What percent of the original volume is the volume of the new prism?

Do you know the formula for volume of Rectangular Prism??

2. anonymous

$Volume = Length \times Width \times Height$

3. anonymous

find the length and width of rectangular base after increment find volume before and after increament and calculate percentage

4. anonymous

volume of rectangular prism is 1/3(area of base times height)

So now each dimension is increased by 10%. Say length be l l is increased by 10% So now it has becomes: l + $$\frac{10}{100}l$$ = $$\frac{11}{10}l$$ Similarly other two lengths will be the same: $Volume = \frac{11 \times 11 \times 11}{1000}LWH$

This is the new volume..
