4. the area of a rectangle is 450 m^2. both the length and width of the rectangle are increased by 10%. what is the area of the new rectangle?

  • math -

    100% = 100 / 100 = 1

    10 % = 10 / 100 = 0.1

    100% + 10 % = 1 + 0.1 = 1.1


    A = Original Area

    A1 = New Area


    Original Area:

    A = W * L = 450 m ^ 2

    New Area:

    A1 = 1.1 * W * 1.1 * L

    A1 = 1.1 * 1.1 * W * L

    ( Remark: W * L = A )

    A1 = 1.21 * A

    A1 = 1.21 * 450 = 544.5 m ^ 2
