A side of one polygon is 18 meters and the corresponding side of a second similar polygon is 24 meters. If the perimeter of the first polygon is 60 meters and its area is 1000
square meters, find the perimter and area of the similar polygon.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0primeter = (24/18)*60 area = (24/18)^2 * 1000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.018  60 24  x x=(24*60)/18 = (24*10)/3 = 8*10 =80 will be the perimeter of secondly polygon area = 18  1000 24  x x=(24*1000)/18 = (4*1000)/3 = 4000/3 =1333,3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you have to find the greatest common factor?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the area for that other polygon is 1333.3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So what is the formula you use? The other person's formula for finding the perimiter is similar to yours, but for the area, you guys have different formulas.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just don't understand how you use 3, if the gcf is 6. don't you divide by 6 instead of 3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0indifferent so if you see that for side 18 have got area equal 1000 so than for side 24 will be x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 24 and 18 you can divide exactly by 6 24/6 =4 18/6 =3
