A cylinder has a volume V. A second cylinder has twice the height and twice the radius. What is the volume of the second cylinder, in terms of V?

$$\text{Cylinder volume formula}={\pi}r^2h=V$$

In other words, we are taking a circle and multipying it by the height of the cylinder.

_________________________________________________________________

Since the second cylinder has twice the height and twice the radius, we plug that into the cylinder formula.

(1) $$\pi(2r)^22h={\pi}4r^22h$$

Since $${\pi}r^2h=V$$, we divide by the cylinder formula to see how much V has changed.

1. $$\frac{{\pi}4r^22h}{{\pi}r^2h}=\frac{?}{V}$$

Canceling out, we get:

2. $$\frac{8}{1}=\frac{?}{V}$$

$$?=8V$$

The volume of the second cylinder is $$\boxed{8V}$$

Of course, you can always substitute real values, but its more fun for me to solve it algebraically.
