# Percentage increase in volume of the cube if a side of cube is increased by a given percentage

Given here is a cube, whose one side is increased by a given percentage. The task is to find percentage increase in the volume of the cube.

**Examples:**

Input:x = 10Output:33.1%Input:x = 50Output:237.5%

**Approach**

- In a cube, all sides are equal, so,

**length = breadth = height** - let side of the cube =
**a** - given percentage increase =
**x%** - so, volume before increase =
**a^3** - after increase, new side =
**a + ax/100** - so, new volume =
**(a + ax/100)^3**=**a^3 + (ax/100)^3 + 3a^3x/100 + 3a^3x^2/10000** - increase in volume = new volume – old volume =
**(a^3 + (ax/100)^3 + 3a^3x/100 + 3a^3x^2/10000) – a^3**=**(ax/100)^3 + 3a^3x/100 + 3a^3x^2/10000** - so, percentage increase in volume =
**(((ax/100)^3 + 3a^3x/100 + 3a^3x^2/10000)/a^3) * 100**=**((x/100)^3 + 3x/100 + 3x^2/10000) * 100 = x^3/10000 + 3x + 3x^2/100**

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
