Notice the figure above. In it a segment is 1 inch long, and a segment is 4 inches long. The right segment is 4 times the length of the left segment. Below you have squares. The left square is 1 inch by 1 inch. Its area is 1 square inch. On the right, the square is 4 inches by 4 inches. Its are is 16 square inches. Notice that the side is 4 times longer, but the area id 16 times larger. 16 is the same as 4^2. When a side of a polygon increases by 4 times, the area increases by 4^2 times. In general. if the scale factor between the sides of similar polygons is k, then the scale factor of the areas is k^2. If you do it for the volumes, you'll see the scale factor of the volumes is k^3.

Did you read anything I wrote? At least read this part again: "When a side of a polygon increases by 4 times, the area increases by 4^2 times. In general. if the scale factor between the sides of similar polygons is k, then the scale factor of the areas is k^2."
c
No. If the scale factor of the sides is k, the scale factor of the areas is k^2. If the scale factor of the sides is 3, the scale factor of the areas is 3^2. What is 3^2? 3^2 = 3 * 3 = ?
d
Notice that the height was 3 and became 9, Since 9/3 = 3, the scale factor of the heights is 3. If the scale factor of the sides is 3, the scale factor of the areas is 3^2.
Correct. Answer is D.
