    I think Up Factored means you increase it times 10 instead of decreasing it by 10.

    I used a calculator and entered in any random numbers for L, W, and H that came out to 160. I then multiplied each of them by 10 and came up with 16000. Do not take me by my word, I am not entirely sure. With Length: 5.5 Height: 5 Width: 5 You get a Surface area of 160. When I multiplied each of those by 10, I got a surface area of 16000. I am not entirely sure this is the answer. Is this multiple choice?

    I think it is the right answer. If this is Geometry, then that is what I was taught. If you aren't sure with my answer (to be honest, I'm not either) then you could probably find help on your subject on kahnacademy.com
