If each dimension is increased by 20% that is a 1.2*1.2= 1.44= **44% area increase**.

**We can assign the length and width variables, l and w respectively. **

**The increase in each dimension would result in:**

**(l*1.2) * (w*1.2) = lw * 1.44**

**Since we know that lw is the original area, there is a 44 percent increase. **

**We don't even need to consider the fact that the dimensions are 24 and 16!**
