    Rectangular Prism

    If the length of a rectangular prism is doubled, its width is tripled, and its height remains the same, what is the volume of the new rectangular prism?

    (1) double the original volume
    (2) triple the original volume
    (3) six times the original volume
    (4) nine times the original volume

    Use the same method TPH did with the Circumference problem...

    V = L*W*H

    2L*3W*H = 6L*W*H

    Substitute V in for L*W*H...

    You should be able to answer this question now.

    That's what 6V would imply, yes.
