12inches

First, similar means you can make a ratio between the two figure's sides: \[ \frac{E'M'}{EM}= \frac{G'A'}{GA} \] you know EM= 35 and E'M'= 14 so we can use those numbers to get \[ \frac{14}{35}= \frac{G'A'}{GA} \] Now if we know GA, we could solve for G'A' (multiply both sides by GA) To find GA, we use perimeter of the adult pinball machine is 177 That means the sum of the sides= 177 GA+56+56+35= 177 So we can find GA and use it in the ratio to find G'A'

so the awnser is 177?

no it's 12inches... phi said that just take the ratio of the sides and hence find G'A'
