Solution: What will its resistance be if it is uniformly stretched so that its length becomes 12 m?

The resistance of a wire varies directly with its length and inversely with its area. If a certain piece of wire 10 m long and 0.10 cm in diameter has a resistance of 100 ohms, what will its resistance be if it is uniformly stretched so that its length becomes 12 m?
