4 x x =8
x =8/4
So the scale factor will be ?

\[4 \times Scale \ factor =8\]Let the scale factor be \( x\)\[4 \times x =8\] divide both sides by 4 \[x = \frac{8}{4}\]
Is this understandable ?

Its enlarging ,so 4 times *some number* gives you the next size ,and we are trying to find that *some number *which is the scale factor
I've done rest of it in the above post
