The right triangular flag of a sports club was designed to have a base length of 4 ft and height of 6 ft. For a sports event, the club made a new flag by doubling the base and height of the flag.

The area of the new flag is ______ times larger than the original flag.

I am thinking it is four. I thinking it wrong. can i get some help to lead me on the right path please

  • Geometry -

    A = (6 * 4)/2
    A = 12 sq. ft

    A = (12 * 8)/2
    A = 48

    You're right. The new flag has four times the area as the original flag.

  • Geometry -

    Height:15ft
    Area:285ft2

  • Geometry -

    6 is the area
