Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'd say then calculate surface area for both cases. (Final SAInitial SA)/Initial SA * 100 should give you the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let the edge = a cm So increase by 50 % = a + a/ 2 = 3a / 2 TSA of original cube = 6 a 2 TSA of new cube = 6 ( 3a/ 2) 2 = 6 x 9a 2 / 4 = 54a 2 / 4 = 13.5a 2 Increase in area = 13.5a 2  6 a 2 = 7.5a 2 Increase % = ( 7.5a 2 / 6 a 2 ) x 100 = 125%
