John claimed he had a garden twice as large as Al’s rectangular
shaped garden that measured 15 ft by 30 ft. When
they visited John’s rectangularshaped garden, they found
it measured 18 ft by 50 ft. Al claimed that it could not be
twice as large since neither the length nor the width were
twice as large. Who was correct and why?

MathMate,
Area of Al's garden = 15*30 sq.ft.
Area of John's garden = 18*50 sq.ft
Calculate and see if John's garden has twice the area of that of Al's.
