    Answer: (1) 5 times more the area of the old rectangle
    Explanation:-
    Let the length of a rectangle = X m
    And the width of a rectangle =  Y m
    Then, the area of a rectangle = X Y m square.

    If its length is doubled and breadth is tripled.   (according to the question)
    Then,
    The length of the rectangle = 2 X m
    And the width of the rectangle = 3 Y m
    Then, the  new area of the rectangle = 2 X x 3 Y
    = 6 X Y m square.

    More area = 6 X Y – X Y
    = 5 X Y m square
    The area of a rectangle will be 5 times more the area of old rectangle. If its length is doubled and breadth is tripled?
