what's the difference between "fourfold" and "fourtimes"?

do we use " 4times" in this sentence?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WayangOrang

empat kali lipat = fourfold

empat kali = four times

Is "lipat" also used independently on "[number] kali"?

Yes, it is also used like that.

dua kali lipat = twofold
tiga kali lipat = threefold
empat kali lipat = fourfold
etc...
