25
Mertsj

25 wl is the area of the second rectangle. Would you agree?
anonymous
  • anonymous
sure
Mertsj

Its area becomes 25 times greater, and perimeter becomes 5 times greater.
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
I don't think that works for the perimeter. We could try it and see.
anonymous
  • anonymous
well if its area is 25 times bigger it has to be that answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
because its the only one that states the area is 25 times bigger

So how many times bigger is the new perimeter?
anonymous
  • anonymous
5 times bigger yeah
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
Yes. You see, the thing is in the case of the area, we makes the length 5 times bigger and the width 5 times bigger and then we multiply the 5w and 5l which means we have to multiply 5 times 5 and l times w. So the area becomes 25 times bigger.
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
But in the case of the perimeter we only add them so we don't have to multiply the 5 by the 5.
