The scale factor is 1/3 because the area factor is 30/270 and so to find the scale factor you would take the root of 3o over the root of 270 and you would get root 30 over 3 root 30 which can be simplified to 1 over 3 or 1/3.

I have answered every question that was a story problems that had any relation to math for which an answer existed. I have ever answered some questions which had a vague relation to math, but still related.
