During a renovation project for the train station, a parking lot for commuter train passengers is being enlarged. The original lot has an area of 9600 yd², and it is being enlarged by a scale factor of 3. What is the area of the new parking lot?

The area is increased by a square of the scale factor  .....so.....

 

9600 * (3)^2  = 86,400 yd^2
