| **How many times will the perimeter of a rectangle increase, if its length is 3 times its width, if its length is increased by 9 times, and its width by 5 times?**

Take the x width of the rectangle, then its length will be 3x.

Let’s find the perimeter.

(x + 3x) * 2 = 2x + 6x = 8x.

In the enlarged rectangle, the width will be 5x and the length (3x * 9).

We will also find its perimeter.

(5x + 3x * 9) * 2 = (5x + 27x) * 2 = 32x * 2 = 64x.

Now we will find out how many times the perimeter will increase.

64x: 8x = 8.

Answer: The perimeter of the rectangle will increase by 8 times.
