if two polygons are similar,how can you find the scale factor from one polygon to the other?show specific examples.describe how you find the scale factor from the smaller figure to the enlarged figure.then,describe how you find the scale factor from the larger figure to the smaller figure.

Take the ratio of corresponding sides of the two polygons. That it the scale factor.

thank u

if the scale factors are twice the size on each end. i don't know.
