The map distance of Lahori Gate from Diwan-e-Khaas is about 6 cm.

**Make it bigger, make it smaller:**

**Here are some pictures drawn on a 1cm square grid. Try making the same pictures on a 2 cm grid and also on a ½ cm grid.**

**The side of the square was made two times bigger. Does its area also become two times bigger?**

**Solution:**

Suppose the original length of side of square is 1 cm. Now, area of square = side × side = 1 × 1 square cm = 1 square cm

When the side of square is made two times bigger, then the new length of the side of the square will be 2 cm Area of square = side × side = 2 × 2 square cm = 4 square cm

So, when the side of the square is made 2 times bigger, then its area becomes 4 times bigger than the original area.
