**Jai**, Monday, May 14, 2012 at 9:43pmrecall that area of rectangle (shape of the photo) is given by

A = length * width

substituting,

A (original) = 3 * 5 = 15

if we triple both length and width,

new length = 3 * 5 = 15

new width = 3 * 3 = 9

thus,

A (new) = 15 * 9 = 105

to get the ratio, we divide the new area by original area:

105 / 15 = 9

hope this helps~ :)
