    looks like a related rate problem fortunately the formula for the volume of a cube is easy, it is \(V(x)=x^3\)

    take the derivative with respect to time and get \[V'=3x^2x'\]

    you are told \(x'=3\) so this is really \[V'=9x^2\] replace \(x\) by the various values to get \(V'\)

    dV/dt=9x^2dx/dt ?:)

    i used \(V'\) and \(x'\) instead of \(\frac{dV}{dt}\) and \(\frac{dx}{dt}\) because it was easier for me to write also for you it is easier

    but in your notation, you have \[V=x^3\] so \[\frac{dV}{dt}=3x^2\frac{dx}{dt}\]

    this line all edges of a cube are expanding at a rate of 3 centimeters per second tells you that \(\frac{dx}{dt}=3\)

    that means \(\frac{dV}{dt}=3x^2\times 3=9x^2\)
