L/W = 1.2/0.9 = 1.333, repeating of course
1.2 m x 0.9 m = 1.08 m^2
1.08 m^2 x 6.6 = 7.128 m^2
L = 1.333 x W, plugs into A = L x W
A = 1.333W x W = 1.333W^2
W^2 = 7.128/1.333 = 5.35
W = sqrt(5.35) in meters = 2.31m
L = 1.333 x W = 1.333 x sqrt(5.35) in meters = 3.08m

I'm surprised that Adobe CS modules do not offer a means for increasing an object size by area, only width and/or height. A quick search turned up one or more 3rd party filter and plug-in options for this, but I haven't tried any.

It's worth noting that the relationship of the percent increase in area (660) to the percent increase in individual dimensions (257) can be derived by two different approaches. First, 660% is a 6.6-fold increase (divide 660 by 100 to get out of the percent scale). Then since Area (A) is simply Length (L) times Width (W), the square root of the factor of increase of A (2.569) is the factor of increase of either L or W. Alternatively, one can calculate the square root of 660 ( = 25.69) and then multiply by 10 to have the percent increase of either L or W (256.9%).

Why multiply by 10?

1) L/W = 1.2/0.9 = 1.333, repeating of course
2) 1.2 m x 0.9 m = 1.08 m^2
3) 1.08 m^2 x 6.6 = 7.128 m^2
4) L = 1.333 x W, plugs into A = L x W
5) A = 1.333W x W = 1.333W^2
6) W^2 = 7.128/1.333 = 5.35
7) W = sqrt(5.35) in meters = 2.31m
L = 1.333 x W = 1.333 x sqrt(5.35) in meters = 3.08m

I was with you until Step (6).
Step (1) yields the ratio. (2) is the area. (3) Area scaled up 660% (5) is the expression L x W using the ratio value to substitute for "L" in order to figure out "W"

And then I got lost... or maybe I'm not making the connection in the final steps.
