# Find the approximate change in the volume V of a cube of side x metres caused by increasing the side by 1 perecntage

4. Find the approximate change in the volume V of a cube of side x metres caused by increasing the side by 1%.

Side of cube increased by 1% = 0.01x m
Volume of cube = $x^3 \ m^3$
we know that $\Delta y$ is approximately equal to dy
So,
$dy = \frac{dy}{dx}.\Delta x\\ dy =3x^2(0.01x) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ (\because y = x^3 \ and \ \Delta x = 0.01x)\\ dy = 0.03x^3$
Hence, the approximate change in volume V of a cube of side x metres caused by increasing the side by 1% is $0.03x^3 \ m^3$
