the ratios of the areas of small to larger is the ratio of the squares of the sides so as new side is 4 * 5 = 20 ft ratio of their areas is 4^2 : 20^2 = 16 : 400 or 1 : 25

so the area is 25 times larger and now you just multiply ...

lets do it another way area of small square = 4*4 = 16 sq ft the side of big square is 5 times longer that smaller so its 4*5 = 20 ft and its area is 20*20 = 400 sq ft so its 400 / 16 = 25 times bigger number of earthworms = 25 * 1000 = 25,000

small area = 4*4 = 16 large area = (4*7)^2 = 28^2 so ratio is 28* 28 / 16 use your calculator to find this and then multiply by 1000
