# Percentage increase in the volume of cuboid if length, breadth and height are increased by fixed percentages

Given a cuboid and three integers **L**, **B** and **H**. If the length of the cuboid is increased by **L%**, breadth is increased by **B%** percent and height is increased by **H%** percent. The task is to find the percentage increase in the volume of the cuboid.

**Examples:**

Input:L = 50, B = 20, H = 10

Output:98%

Input:L = 10, B = 20, H = 30

Output:71.6%

**Approach:** Suppose the original length, breadth and height of the cuboid be **l**, **b** and **h** respectively. Now, the increased length will be **(l + ((L * l) / 100))** i.e. **increasedLength = l * (1 + (L / 100))**. Similarly, increased breadth and height will be **increasedBeadth = b * (1 + (B / 100))** and **increasedHeight = h * (1 + (H / 100))**.

Now, calculate **originalVol = l * b * h** and **increasedVol = increasedLength * increasedBreadth * increasedHeight**.

And, the percentage increase can be found as **((increasedVol – originalVol) / originalVol) * 100**

(((l * (1 + (L / 100)) * b * (1 + (B / 100)) h * (1 + (H / 100))) – (l * b * h)) / (l * b * h)) * 100

((l * b * h * (((1 + (L / 100)) * (1 + (B / 100)) * (H / 100)) – 1)) / (l * b * h)) * 100

(((1 + (L / 100)) * (1 + (B / 100)) * (1 + (H / 100))) – 1) * 100

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

`// C++ implementation of the approach ` `#include <bits/stdc++.h> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `// Function to return the percentage increase ` `// in the volume of the cuboid ` `double` `increaseInVol(` `double` `l, ` `double` `b, ` `double` `h) ` `{ ` ` ` `double` `percentInc = (1 + (l / 100)) ` ` ` `* (1 + (b / 100)) ` ` ` `* (1 + (h / 100)); ` ` ` `percentInc -= 1; ` ` ` `percentInc *= 100; ` ` ` ` ` `return` `percentInc; ` `} ` ` ` `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` `double` `l = 50, b = 20, h = 10; ` ` ` `cout << increaseInVol(l, b, h) << ` `"%"` `; ` ` ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `} ` |
