    AB corresponds to FG

    So FG/AB = 6/8 = 0.75 is the number you multiply each side length in the larger pentagon to get the corresponding side length in the smaller pentagon

    notice how FJ corresponds to AE

  14. jim_thompson5910
    • 2 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 0

    and FJ = 6 So AE = FJ/0.75 = 6/0.75 = 8 which means AE = 8
