    Changing X has no effect on the reaction rate. Doubling X causes the reaction rate to quadruple. Dividing X by two causes the reaction rate to be cut in half. Multiplying X by three also increases the reaction rate by three times.

    \[\text{rate} = k[X]^2[Y]\] ?

    say \(X=2x\) \[\text{rate}=k[2x]^2[Y]\]\[\qquad=k2^2[x]^2[Y]\]\[\qquad=4k[x]^2[Y]\]
