Weight is proportional to volume.
Volume of a cube = (one side)$$^3$$
Let x be the side of the first cube. So:
Volume $$= x^3$$
The sides of the second cube are three times as long. So:
Volume $$= (3x)^3 = 27x^3$$
The ratio of the volumes of the old and new cubes will be 1: 27. So, if the first weighs 5 kilograms, the second weighs 27 × 5 kilograms =135 kilogram.
