The area of a square is 9 centimeters squared (cm^2) If the sides of the square are doubled in length, what is the new area, in centimeters squared, of the enlarged square?

A: 24 cm^2
B: 18 cm^2
C: 81 cm^2
D: 36 cm^2


  1. Answer:

    The question says area of a square = 9 cm squared.

    And they said if the sides are doubled in length what is the new length

    so new length = 9 cm^2 × 9 cm^2

    which should give you 81cm^2

    therefore your answer should be = C
