If you multiply two measurements, you get only two dimensions - an area. For a volume, you need three dimensions.

The volume goes up by 9 times

the dimensions of the cylinder would be 2 times greater. We just had a test on this stuff and this was one of the questions.

The dimensions of a Kleenex box are length, width and height. The volume of the box is equivalent to length times width times height.

The new area is 22 = 4 times the original area. The new volume is 23 = 8 times the original volume.

If a calculation of volume in cubic inches is needed, all dimensions need to be converted to inches before calculating the volume. For example, if calculating a rectangular prism in cubic inches, the dimensions need to be converted to inches, then the volume is calculated as length times width times height.

No, it's not that simple. the volume of a box, if let us say (for simplicity's sake) it is cubical in shape, is the length cubed (or if it is rectangular, it is length x width x height). So let us say we have a cubical box 2' on an edge. Its volume is 2x2x2=8 cubic feet. Now let us say that we double the length of an edge. Now we have 4x4x4=64 cubic feet. It has eight times the volume of the smaller box. If we are dealing with a rectangular box rather than a cubical box, the calculations are more complicated, but it remains true that the volume grows much faster than the linear dimensions.

The new area is 22 = 4 times the original area. The new volume is 23 = 8 times the original volume.
