Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Say your cube has side length 4, then 4*4*4 = 64, but if you multiply each side by 10 then it becomes: 40*40*40=64000, which is a 99900% increase.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you for helping me, If the side lengths are not given, how much greater would the volume be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Original length of side is a. Volume is a*a*a=a³ New side is 10a, Volume = 10a*10a*10a=... Can you see where this is getting to? BTW, from the question I wouldn't have guessed giving a percentage. I'd say a multiplication factor will do.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It would still always be 99900% increase, or just multiply the original volume by 1000 to get new volume where sides are multiplied by 10.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Zelda is right! 10a*10a*10a = 10*10*10*a*a*a = 1000a³, so that is 1000 times the original value.
