  1. increase in the length from 8 to 10 is 2cm
    percent increase = 2/8 = 25%

    old area = 40
    new area = 70
    increase = 30
    percent increase = 30/40 = 75%

    did you realize that the increase will result in a distortion ?
    The percentage increase of the length is NOT the same as the percentage increase in the width
