    In 8th grade we cover the concept of similar figures and similar solids which include this multiplicative thinking. Students who have an innate sense of this relative comparison see the answer very easily or at least can estimate and give a reasonable answer. Students who have not yet developed a sense of relative comparison have difficulty knowing if their answers are correct or when they have given an answer that is completely unreasonable.
