yes,V=lwh now twice as long-->2l, twice as high--->2h and twice as wide --->2w so what is the new volume ?
is it 2V ?
um it is not twice the volume of the first box.
thats correct, its not twice. So, how many times is the new volume ?
um, 4?
how come?
new V = (2l)(2w)(2h) =... ?
2*2*4?
16?
new V = (2l)(2w)(2h) =2*2*2 lwh = ...?
8.
so, wht should i write?
yes. new volume is 8 times the old.
okay. but he is not correct. so,no,because the new box has a volume of 8 times more than the old one?
would that be a good statement?
yes, the statement is correct.
