There will not be percentage increase when the radius is doubled and the height is quartered,


A cylinder's volume is equal to the base X height.
Doubling the radius (r) and quartering the height (h) makes the increase (I) equal to the new size / old size
After cancelling the height and pi out, you are left with
which all cancels out to leaving 1, meaning that the volume did not change.
