A circle does not have volume since it is a 2 dimensional shape. Volume requires 3 dimensions.

If one dimension of a 3-dimensional shape is doubled, the volume increases by 21 = 2. If two dimensions of a 3-dimensional shape are doubled, the volume increases by 22 = 4. If all three dimensions of a 3-D shape are doubled, the volume increases by 23 = 8.

If the volume of a triangular prism is 300 Cm, the dimensions can be regarded as V = L (A=Bx 1/2 x H). Therefore, we can assume the length to be 12cm, base to be 12 cm.

well...if it's doubled then its doubled (just treat it the same)
