Proportion with squares and cubes

I wanted a series of questions that looked at the effect of double the base number whilst squaring. It makes me think of when we double the lengths of a 2D shape to create similar shapes but the area is 4 times as big. I wanted to look at the idea in this way as a precursor to looking at area and volume.
