# What Will Happen to The Area of A Rectangle?

What will happen to the area of a rectangle if its length is doubled and breadth is tripled?

- 5 times more the area of the old rectangle
- Area will remain the same
- 6 times less the area of the old rectangle
- 6 times more the area of the old rectangle

**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?
