Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

You expect double the volume of one world, and volume is proportional to R^3, so Rx = R*2^(1/3). 
Rf/Rx = (R*3/4)/(R*2^(1/3)) = (3/4)/2^(1/3) 
Vf/Vx = (Rf/Rx)^3 =((3/4)/2^(1/3))^3 = (3/4)^3/2 = 0.2109375 
Final density = Vx/Vf*ρ0 = 4.7ρ0

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
