The surface area of a fish tank is 142 in2. The scale factor of a similar fish tank is larger by a scale factor of 6. What is the surface area of the larger fish tank?

PLZ HELP! I HAVE A DEADLINE!

  • Math Geometry -

    Surface area is proportional to the square of the linear scale factor.

    Multiply 142 in^2 by 36 for your answer.
