Homework Help: Pre-Algebra

Well, this problem is really stumping me, so here it is.

Directions: In each problem, first draw a picture of the situation to the right of the problem. Then decide whether the problem involves measuring length or area growth to help you answer the questions.

1. It costs Mrs. Jones $400 to carpet the small room shown. She has another room twice as long and twice as wide. How much will it cost her to carpet the bigger room with carpeting?

The picture shows a rectangle with no shown dimensions.

So, how am I suppose to start off?

-Sorry for the grammar mis-splled, I just type-read from the paper.
