The perimeter will scale by the same factor.

New perimeter = old perimeter*scale factor New area = Old area*scale factor2

The linear scale factor is 100.

There need not be any. There is no scale factor between a pentagon with a perimeter of 50 cm and a triangle with a perimeter of 75 cm. The shapes are totally different!The scale factor is 2 : 3.

It is a strict linear relationship. Double the size, double the perimeter. The area, however, increases by the square of the scale factor.

The perimeter, being a linear measure, also changes by a factor of 3.

12r = p

If the scale factor is r, then the new area will be the area of the original multiplied by r^2

If you change the scale factor of a geometric figure by a factor "x", that is, keeping the new figure similar to the old one, the perimeter (which is also a linear measurement) will change by the SAME factor "x".Note that any area will change by a factor of x squared.

A rectangle 10.5 x 3 will have a perimeter of 27 in.

The perimeter to area ratio.

Perimeter will scale by the same factor. Area of the new figure, however is the original figures area multiplied by the scale factor squared. .

The circumference of a circle is its perimeter

the answer to this question is 1:4 10: ? =10x4/1 =40

For a, it tells you how many times the side lengths grew or shrunk.For b, it tells you that the perimeter grows or shrinks: scale factor times original perimeter.For c, it tells you that the area grows or shrinks: scale factor squared times the original area.

corresponding angles are the same size

divide the perimeter by 27 the multiply it by 3 and then u get the answer

I highly doubt anyone knows. Perhaps, find a large map of Minnesota, estimate its perimeter (maybe by surrounding the border with string) then multiply by the proper scale factor.

You increase the scale factor.

The area scale factor is the square of the side length scale factor.

if the length and breadth are increased by 5 times each area becomes 25 times

1 shape cannot have a scale factor. A scale factor is something (a factor) that relates one shape to another.

The area is directly proportional to the square of the scale factor. If the scale factor is 2, the area is 4-fold If the scale factor is 3, the area is 9-fold If the scale factor is 1000, the area is 1,000,000-fold
