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.

Primeter is proportional to (side) Area to (side)^2

I don't get what you mean.

primeter = (24/18)*60 area = (24/18)^2 * 1000

18 --- 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

where did you get the 3 in the area?
jhonyy9
  • jhonyy9
simplify 24 and 18 by 6
anonymous
  • anonymous
so you have to find the greatest common factor?
jhonyy9
  • jhonyy9
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
So the area for that other polygon is 1333.3?
jhonyy9
  • jhonyy9
after simplify end get the result of area
jhonyy9
  • jhonyy9
and
jhonyy9
  • jhonyy9
yes
jhonyy9
  • jhonyy9
hope that is understandably

So 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.

I just don't understand how you use 3, if the gcf is 6. don't you divide by 6 instead of 3?
jhonyy9
  • jhonyy9
indifferent so if you see that for side 18 have got area equal 1000 so than for side 24 will be x
jhonyy9
  • jhonyy9
so 24 and 18 you can divide exactly by 6 24/6 =4 18/6 =3
jhonyy9
  • jhonyy9
ok ?

  • anonymous
Ohhhh yes! Got it.
