A rectangular garden has a length that is twice its width. The dimensions are increased so that the perimeter is doubled and the new shape is a square with an area of 3600 square feet. What was the area of the original garden, in square feet?

When the perimeter is doubled  the scale factor  =  2

 

Original area  =   New Area /  Scale Factor^2  =   3600 / 2^2  =  3600 / 4 =  900
