**Steve**, Thursday, March 8, 2012 at 3:22pmthe actual values of the dimensions make no difference.

If the original base sides are s, the height is h, then the volume v is

v = 1/3 s^2 * h

now, multiply each dimension by 5 and your new volume V is

V = 1/3 (5s)^2 * (5h)

= 1/3 * 25s^2 * 5h

= 125 * 1/3 s^2 * h

= 125v

or, 5^3 * v

scaling the dimensions of a figure by a factor of n means

area is scaled by n^2

volume is scaled by n^3
