    To find the area of a triangle you do width*height*(1/2)

    We start with L=14 and W=12 and now we are doubling width, so it's 24 what would be new area with l=4 and w=24?

    Well, we started with dimensions 14 and 12 we found it's area to be 168 then we doubled width so we have 14 and 24 and the area of that was 336. if you compare both areas; 168 and 336 one is 2 times the other, 336 is 2 times larger than 168. so by doubling the width, our new area is also doubled. Do you understand it now? @tigeranime

    doubling width also led to doubling the area, no worries. :)
