V1 = s^3

V2 = (1.5s^3)

V2 = 3.375s^3

Now 

( V2 - V1 )/V1 * 100 = (3.375 s^3 - s^3)/s^3 * 100

( V2 - V1 )/V1 * 100 = (3.375 - 1)s^3/s^3 * 100

                                = (3.375 - 1) *100

                                = 2.375 * 100

                                = 237.5

Hence increased percent volume is 237.5
