Make a proportion of the corresponding sides. 59:x is as 6:3 $\frac{59}{x} = \frac{6}{3}$Cross multiply and solve for x.

Lenths of corresponding sides of similar polygons are in proportion. Therefore, 3 is to x as 6 is to 59. 3/x = 6/59 Cross multiply to get 6x = 3*59 Solve for x. What is x? @KrystaRenee

29.5?

5. whpalmer4

Yep.
