    When I do the work, I get an answer of B: \[\frac{ 12 }{ 40 } = \frac{ 3 }{ x }\] Set it as a proportion to solve for sides on similar figures

    So, you cross multiplied and got 120=12 and then divided and got 10? @MichaelAlex292

    Well, no I understand since I did out the work. And thank you, but can you help me with that question I just posted? And I understand why C was wrong.

    For the one you just posted, B is correct: \[\frac{ 1 cm }{ 10 ft } = \frac{ 5.2 cm }{ x ft }\] Solve for x
