    Do I need to do anything with the cm squared though?

    This is my question that I need to know this for: Bryan is an art sculptor and is creating an art series made entirely of similar figures. He buys a Sponge Bob Square Pants figure and decides he wants to make a larger version that is 15 times bigger. If the area of the figure is 12.5 cm2, what is the area of his sculpture?

    well we are given the area of 12.5 cm^2 and you just want it 15 times bigger. 12.5 is just one value it's a number ...but if you want to know what the sides length is after you make it 15 times bigger then that's a different story and you do have to worry about the cm^2

    Oh okay so I would just multiply 12.5 by 15 and then that would be my answer but I would have to add the cm2 to the end right?
