Assunto:  Threefold / three times?
 
Mensagem:  -fold.

Does Nora know we can weld any number to the suffix -fold and thus get any specified number of times?

E.g., a cake affording a three-centillion-fold growth (= um bolo que permite um crescimento três centilhões de vezes)

Half the population of Rio de Janeiro will take some time to devour it. Weeks, perhaps.
