| **The length of this rectangle was increased by 3 times and the width by 2 times. The area of the resulting rectangle is 48 cm2. Find the area of the given rectangle**

Since the area of a rectangle is the product of length and width, then when the length or width is increased by a certain number of times, the area will increase by the same number of times.

After increasing the length by 3 times, and the width by 2 times, the area is 48 cm², we calculate the initial area.

S = 48 cm² ÷ 3 ÷ 2 = 8 cm².

Answer: 8 cm².
