In one of my math problems the answer stated that going from n^2 to 2n^2 is an increase by a factor of 4. I dont understand how this is. Can someone explain?

Thanks alot. I thought about this last night and came to the same conclusion that I was "assuming" that the equation was like this 2(n^2) vs (2n)^2. Thanks!
