60 x 3 x 3 x 3=1620in3

I thought 60 x 60 x 60 .3.
Kash_TheSmartGuy has the right idea triple each dimension ----> the volume gets multiplied by 3^3 = 27
K
try it with a 2by3by4 prism then triple each dimension compare the two volumes |dw:1434426114693:dw|
|dw:1434426207123:dw|
So that would be 1620in3
Hmm, I'm not getting 1620
those were just random examples
Oh
notice how 648/24 = 27
and how 3^3 = 3*3*3 = 27
|dw:1434426374216:dw|
Yup^^
Oh. Kk
k so 648 in^3
^ answer?
648 was from the example I randomly made up
to show the connection between the two prisms
no, that was just an example
oh, o3o
so 60^3 = 216,000
the smaller volume is 60 in^3
larger volume = 27*(smaller volume) because each side is tripled
so 60 x 3 x 27 = 4,860
if you quadrupled each side, then larger volume = 64*(smaller volume) the 64 comes from the fact that 4^3 = 64 ---------------------------------- if you multiplied each side by 5, then larger volume = 125*(smaller volume) the 125 comes from the fact that 5^3 = 125 ---------------------------------- if you multiplied each side by 6, then larger volume = 216*(smaller volume) the 216 comes from the fact that 6^3 = 216 ---------------------------------- etc etc
`so 60 x 3 x 27 = 4,860` not quite
smaller volume = 60 in^3 larger volume = 27*(smaller volume)
60 in^3 = 60 x 60 x 60 just double checking
yup
so then 60^3 x 27 which is 5,832,00
`60 in^3 = 60 x 60 x 60 just double checking` that's false
use a calculator to see what 60*60*60 is
i got 216000
|dw:1434427062119:dw|
so because you got 216000, you can see that 60 in^3 is not the same as 60*60*60
i was just about to say that XD
but then this whole time it wasn't 60^3 it was 60 x 27
yeah because 60 is already a volume (not a side length)
-3- kay.
