Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0looks good. 30 is correct. next, we just set up a proportion. \(\dfrac{GA}{G'A'}=\dfrac{EM}{E'M'}\\\dfrac{30}{x}=\dfrac{35}{14}\) or you can just use the scale factor and so we know that 2.5*\((G'A)'\)=GA so we can do \(2.5x=30\\x=\dfrac{30}{2.5}\)
