Doubling the Dimensions
in this video we are going to talk about what happens to the volume if you double one or more than one of the
dimensions so in this rectangular prism we know that the length is 2 or a length is 10 the width is the height is 5 when we multiply those
dimensions we get the volume of 100 cubic centimeters but my question now is if I double the length it's pretty obvious to see that now as this had a volume of 100 cubic centimeters then this will have a volume of 100 great feet centimeters so if I double the length, I'm going to double the volume just to check that the new length is 20, the height stays at 2 so that the wood stays at the height, it stays at 5 and we get 200 centimeters.
I want it to double the height so now we have now our length is 10 our width is still 2 now our height is 10 200 cubic centimeters so if you double a dimension your volume will always double let's think about cheating my life so now I have if I triple my length, thanks to Little Hawks for the volume now our length is 30 I don't hope don't chew our height is still tall so if we triple one of the
dimensions you can basically go back to our original volume and multiply it by three. my length and I doubled my height so you could do all the math but check this out if I go three times that way and twice as big that way three times two is six I take my original volume and just multiply it by six because now if you look at my originals i have one two a triple one dimension and the double another dimension let's think three times - i'm not applying my original volume five six
