Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I don't think that works for the perimeter. We could try it and see.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well if its area is 25 times bigger it has to be that answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because its the only one that states the area is 25 times bigger

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So how many times bigger is the new perimeter?

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes. 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But in the case of the perimeter we only add them so we don't have to multiply the 5 by the 5.
