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?
