xΔ =x+\(\frac{x}{4} = \frac{5x}{4}\)...
so \((bΔ)Δ = \frac{5}{4}*\frac{5b}{4}\)=\(\frac{25}{8}\).................\(\frac{25b}{16}= \frac{25}{8}\)........b=2

I somehow still struggle with this question a bit and had really on partly guessing to get it right.
Could someone provide a little more detailed approach to solving this question?

Thanks in advance!
