Is the new volume 8 times geater than original?

**Jai**, Sunday, May 15, 2011 at 9:00amrecall that the volume of a rectangular prism is given by

V = L*W*H

where

L = lenght

W = width

H = height.

if 4 is multiplied to both length and width, the new volume, V', is

V' = (4L)*(4W)*(H)

V' = 16*(L*W*H) or

V' = 16*V

thus the new volume is 16 times greater.

hope this helps~ :)
