    Hi guys,

    This question has me a bit stumped and I can't seem to find any methods on Google that would help me solve this:




    The last part of the question asks me to find the value of the scale factor, which in this equation I believe is 1.8.

    I know how to calculate percentage increases the normal way, but I have never come across this sort of questions before, I'm unsure of how I can use the scale factor to calculate the percentage increase of the figures recorded in the table

    Can anyone give me a hint here?

    Cheers for any help
