**Steve**, Tuesday, January 17, 2012 at 10:20amif a rectangle (or any 2-dimensional figure) is scaled by a factor of n, then

length l becomes nl

width w becomes nw

area lw becomes (nl)(nw) = n^2(lw) = n^2 times the old area

For your rectangle, the new area is 9 times the old area, so the scale factor is √9 = 3
