The Basics and Background Information
When one attribute of a prism is changed through multiplication or division the volume increases by the same factor that the attribute increased by. For example, if a prism has a volume of 2 x 3 x 4, the volume is 24. However, if one of the attributes are doubled, the volume doubles.
When you increase or decrease the length, width or height of a prism by a factor greater than 1, the volume of the prism is also increased by that factor.
