Q:
# A shipping box in the shape of a cube has an edge length of 8 inches. It can hold 8 mugs with no extra space between them.If the dimensions of the shipping box are all doubled, what is the maximum number of mugs that the larger box can hold?16244864

Accepted Solution

A:

The bigger box will have a volume 2^3 greater than the smaller box. That is 8 times larger.

So number of mugs it can hold is 8*8 = 64 mugs.

So number of mugs it can hold is 8*8 = 64 mugs.
