A rectangle has a side length of 3 feet and an area of 24 square feet. A larger similar rectangle has a corresponding side length of 9 feet. Find the area of the larger rectangle.
The scale factor from the smaller rectangle to the larger is 3
The area of the larger rectangle =
Area of smaller rectangle * (Scale Factor)^2 =
24 * (3)^2 =
24 * 9 =
