  • Answer: 8

    Step-by-step explanation: first multiply 12x4x8 for jakes gift. that is 384

    then make each of the dimensions twice as large. so havanas dimensions would be. 24x8x16

    24x8x16=3,072

    last divide 3,072 by 384 and the answer would be 8

    Havana's box is 8 times larger.

  • I believe the answer is 8
