(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Area of goal box (soccer field) is described with (10x^2) / 27 and area of penalty box is described with (22x^2) / 9 . Determine how many times greater in size the penalty box is compared to the goal box.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I created the areas of the boxes based from dimensions, and simplified to what I have given (assume they are correct). Just don't get how to figure out that size difference (which is terrible since I just completed this question on the Fermat math contest for Waterloo earlier today, no problem, but I get thrown off in even easier math?)
