Try putting commas between your zeros so that it's easier to keep track of.

The scale factor of the park is 2.5? I don't think this is right, but the dimensions of the park were multiplied by 2.5... Is that the scale factor? I divided 25 by 10 to get 2.5 and checked by multiplying 20 by 2.5 and got 50. The actual dimensions of the park are 1,250,000 km by 2,500,000 km (?) That's pretty big....The square area of the park will be 3,125,000,000,000 km. 3,075,000,000,000 km2 has been added to the park.

The scale factor was increased by 2.5. I know this because 10 x 2.5 = 25 and 20 x 2.5 = 50.

The scale tractor is 2.5 because 10×25 then 20×2.5 which is 50. The new parks dimension is 1,250,000km and 2,500,000. 3,075,000,000,000 km2 was added. So the square area of the park will be 3,125,000,000,000 km

The scale in the picture will be increased by 2.5. We know that 10 multiplied by 2.5 is 25 so that means 20 multiplied by 2.5 is going to be 50. If I'm correct, the new size of the park is: 3,125,000,000,000 KM

2.5 is the scale factor. The reason is because the difference between 10:20 and 25:50 is multiply 2.5. 10x2.5=25 and 20x2.5=50.

The scale factor is 2.5, therefor we can head on to the next part of this question. (10 x 2.5 = 25, 20 x 2.5 = 50.)

The scale factor is 2.5, actual dimension for the park is 1 500,000x25,000,000. There will be 3,075,000,000,000km added to the park, unless the government is too cheap and doesn’t do it.
