Doubling, quadrupling

What does it mean when you have a second order reaction and you double its rate or even triple, what would occur.

That would mean that the rate would quadruple or multiply by 6.

If you increase your reactant for a second order, that means that the rate would be increased by the square of however much you increased your reactant.
