## victorlau123 2 years ago The sides of a hexagon are 4,3,4,6,8, and 9. Find the perimeter of a similar hexagon with two sides of length 3.

?? It's a "Similar" hexagon. If TWO sides are to be length 3, these 3-sides must correspond with the original 4-sides, since those are the only sides that have the same length.

@tkhunny The ratio is 4:3 right?

17. tkhunny

That's it. It's a good problem. It doesn't quite tell you what it wants. You have to realize the 4-sides are the only ones that match.

@tkhunny Thank you!

@Hero can you help me with my geo problem?

20. tkhunny

It's usually better to post a new question on a new thread. Is this the same problem?
