The area is 2304 sq cm.

If we double the sides then the new area will be 4 times the original since we would have (2s)^2=4s^2.

A=s²
A=(48 cm)²
A=2,304 cm²

If double the side:
A=(96 cm)²
A=9,216 cm²

Conclusion

If you double the amount of the side, the original value of the area is 1/4 of it.

Hope this helps =)
