    It will be 12 times the original perimeter. It will be 3 times the original perimeter. It will be 18 times the original perimeter. It will be 9 times the original perimeter

    okay, so he increases the length and makes it three times. perimeter originally = 2(l+b) now 'l' becomes '3l', so what will be the new perimeter?

    No, it would not necessarily a multiple of the previous perimeter - since the breadth is not known.

    Wait - did you actually mean 'area' instead of 'perimeter'?
