Current and resistance questions

You might need:


Suppose two parallel plates are inserted into a solution, and the current that passes between them for a known potential difference is used to measure the electrolytic resistivity of the solution. How would this resistivity change if the area of both of the two plates was doubled, at a fixed separation distance?
