# Burn it all down

Suppose that the measured frequency of forest fires that burn down $\SI{100}{\kilo\meter\squared}$ is found to be $\SI{0.5}{fires\ per\ year},$ and that $\beta$ is known to be approximately $1.2.$

What do you expect the frequency of forest fires of burn area $\SI{10000}{\kilo\meter\squared}$ to be?
