If you double dimensions in the x, y and z direction, then the volume will be multiplied by 8 (2x2x2)

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How can 2 prisms have the same volume but different dimensions?

If you double the cross-sectional area and halve the length, you will still have the same volume but the dimensions will be different.

How do you find the dimensions of a rectangular prism from the volume?

You can't tell the dimensions of a rectangle from its area, or the dimensions of a prism from its volume.

How many doubling the width of a box affect its volume?

If the other dimensions (length and height) are left unchanged, doubling the width will double the volume.

If the dimensions of a figure are increased by a factor of 7 By what factor does the volume change?

if all 3 dimensions increase b factor of 7 then volume changes by 7 cubed or a factor of 343

Does the volume of a box double if the dimensions are doubled?

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.

What is the L x W x H for 5.21 cubic meters?

The dimensions of a cuboid cannot be determined from its volume. You could, for example, double the length and halve the width: that would leave the volume unchanged but the dimensions will be different.

How many different dimensions are there if you have a volume of 84?

Volume always has three dimensions. Area always has two dimensions. Length always has one dimension. Location has no dimensions.
