If each side of a square is increased by 25%, find the percentage change in its area.

A.62.25
B.59.52
C.58.75
D.56.25
Answer and Feedback
Answer:D
Feedback:Let each side of the square be a. Then, area = a2.
New side =(125a/100) =(5a/4). New area = (5a/4)2 =(25a2)/16.
Increase in area = ((25 a2)/16)-a2 =(9a2)/16.
Increase% = [((9a2)/16)×(1/a2)×100] % = 56.25%.
