if l,b,h are respectively the length,breadth and height of a cuboid.what would be the volume of a new cuboid if each dimension is halved
Question asked by: kapilbajaj

Asked on: 02 Feb 2011

The formula for the volume of a cuboid is very straightforward and here it is:

Volume = Height Width Length

So if those measured are all halved, then the volume is an eighth of what it was before, because it decreases by a factor of 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 which is an eighth.
