Hi Conny;
A=s2, V=s3
 
Side Length...Area of Square...Volume of Cube
2s.................(2s)2=4s2..........(2s)3=8s3
3s.................(3s)2=9s2..........(3s)3=27s3
s2.................(s2)2=s4............(s2)3=s6
s3.................(s3)2=s6............(s3)3=s9
 
Please note that an exponential to an exponential, such as (s3)3 must have the exponentials multiplied together, s9.
