The surface area of a particular cube is 600 square inches. When the
edges of the cube are doubled in length, what is the volume of the
new cube, in cubic inches?

  • Math -

    The volume of two cubes is proportional to the cube of their sides
    since you increased the side by a factor of 2
    the volume will increase by a factor of 2^3


    Can you find the side of the original cube knowing its surface area is 600 ?

  • Math -

    100 because when you multiply 6 by 100 you will get 600
