Enlargement, length and area 0 Overview Connecting to the Curriculum Marking Student Responses Working with Students Further Resources This task is about how the scale factor enlargement affects length, area, and volume of 2 and 3 dimensional shapes. Question 1Change answer a) If the square above was enlarged by a scale factor of 5: a) If the square above was enlarged by a scale factor of 5: what would be the length of each side? metres what would be the area? square metres Complete the following sentence. The area of the enlarged square would be times the area of the original square. Question 1Change answer b) If the regular hexagon above was enlarged by a scale factor of 4 b) If the regular hexagon above was enlarged by a scale factor of 4 What would be the length of each side? Complete the following sentence. The area of the enlarged hexagon would be times the area of the original hexagon. Question 1Change answer c) If the cube above was enlarged by a scale factor of 3: c) If the cube above was enlarged by a scale factor of 3: What would be the length of each side? What would be the volume? Complete the following sentence. The volume of the enlarged cube would be times the volume of the original cube.
