### What is the effect on the perimeter of a rectangle if the dimension are doubled what is the effect on its area?

Let's take a look at this problem.
Rectangle Perimeter = 2(l + w)
Rectangle Perimeter =? 2(2l + 2w)
Rectangle Perimeter =? (2)(2)(l + w)
2(Rectangle Perimeter) = 2[2(l + w)]
Thus, we can say that the perimeter of a rectangle is doubled
when its dimensions are doubled.
Rectangle Area = lw
Rectangle Area =? (2l)(2w)
Rectangle Area =? 4lw
4(Rectangle Area) = 4lw
Thus, we can say that the area of a rectangle is quadruplicated
when its dimensions are doubled.
