**Jai**, Friday, October 28, 2011 at 11:03amthe surface area of a rectangular solid is given by

SA = 2(LW + LH + WH)

where

W = width, L = length, H = height

if we double all the dimensions,

SA' = 2[(2L)(2W) + (2L)(2H) + (2W)(2H)]

SA' = 2[4LW + 4LH + 4WH]

SA' = 2*4[LW + LH + WH]

SA' = 4*SA

therefore, what Jan says is wrong. It takes 4 times as much wrapping paper to wrap it.

hope this helps~ :)

**Steve**, Friday, October 28, 2011 at 12:01pmSince area is 2-dimensional, doubling each linear dimension scales the area by 2

^{2}= 4

It changes the volume by 2^{3}= 8
