The dimensions of Box B, shown below, are twice the lengths of the corresponding dimensions on Box A (not shown).

The volume of Box B is eight times the volume of Box A.


Since the dimensions of Box A are half of the dimensions of Box B, the side lengths must be 3, 2, and 1.5. Next, find the volumes of the two boxes. Use the formula V = lwh. The volume of Box B is 72, and the volume of Box A is 9. 72 is 8 times larger than 9.
