Gina uses a magnifying glass to look at bugs. A caterpillar that is 2 inches long appears 4.5 inches long through the glass. What is the scale factor?

That's not even one of the choices... I have the same problem. I don't understand this at all. I'm on a test, and I cant find the answer to this question. Going to online school sure has a down side.
