    \[Volume = Length \times Width \times Height\]

    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: \[Volume = \frac{11 \times 11 \times 11}{1000}LWH\]
