Length of larger field say L=2L1
Width of larger field say B=4B1
Area of larger field A = LxB = 8xL1B1
Area of smaller field = L1B1 = K
Area of larger field A = 8xK
Hence, area of the larger field is greater than the area of the smaller field by 8K-K = 7K
Answer C

Let width of smaller field = x
Let length of smaller field = y

Width of larger field = 4x
Length of larger field = 2y

Area of smaller field = xy = K

Area of larger field = (4x)(2y) = 8(xy)
xy = K, Area of larger = 8K

Area of larger field is greater by what amount? 8K - K = 7K

ANSWER C

OR choose values, where

Area of small = K
Area of small = (L * W)
K = LW

Small W = 1, Small L = 1

Large W = 4, Large L = 2

Small area = (LW) = (1*1) = 1 = K

Large area = (2L*4W) = 8(LW) = 8K

Difference is 8K - K = 7K
