Work Step by Step

We can find an expression for the original volume of the box: $V = L \times W \times H$ We can find the new volume of the box: $V' = 1.001~L \times 1.001~W \times 1.001~H$ $V' = (1.001)^3~L \times W \times H$ $V' = (1.001)^3~V$ $V' = 1.003~V$ The volume increases by 0.3% The correct answer is: (e) +0.3%
