I don't think that works for the perimeter. We could try it and see.

well if its area is 25 times bigger it has to be that answer

So how many times bigger is the new perimeter?

ammy1234 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
5 times bigger yeah

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