    "The relationshiop between areas and side lengths of similar shapes is a squared relationship. This means that if you double the lengths of a shape, the area quadruples. If you triple, the area is multiplied by 9, and so on." So take the number you are multiplying teh sides by, then square that nubmer and multiply it by the original area to get the new area after the length increases of teh sides.
