Bryan is an art sculptor and is creating an art series made entirely of similar figures. He buys a Sponge Bob Square Pants figure and decides he wants to make a larger version that has sides 15 times bigger. If the area of the figure is 12.5 cm^2, what is the area of his sculpture?            

Please show all work, and type in answer without images, it’s easier for me to understand:)
