If u take side of small square as 1 unit, its area is 1 square unit.

If u take side of large square as 3 units, its area is 9 square units.

This way large square has 800% area greater than smaller one.

800% greater. So if first (left) square has area 100, second (right) has 900.
area ratio 900:100 => 9:1
side ratio 3:1

Was making silly mistake.
Instead of 9:1, I was calculating with 8:1..
:wall

Thanks..
