Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The scale factor in area is squared. Since the scale factor of the areas are 1:25, you take the square root of both, and your result is the new scale factor.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok, well when you take the Square root of 1 and 25 you get the scale factor 1:5, so the answer would be 5 times greater.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1np Heron's formula : \(A = \sqrt{s(sa)(sb)(sc)}\) if you scale each side by a factor of \(k\), the new area would be : \(A' = \sqrt{ks(kska)(kskb)(kskc)} = \sqrt{k^4s(sa)(sb)(sc)}=k^2A\)
