A design on a balloon is 2 cm wide when the balloon holds 47 cm^3. How much must the balloon hold for the design to be 6 cm wide? I'm confused about how to solve this. Could someone please show me the steps?

    length scale change is 3/1
    volume changes as cube of length
    Therefore 3*3*3 = 27 times
    so
    27*47= 1269 cm^3
