A triangle is enlarged by a scale factor of 10/3.

a) If the perimeter of the copy is 36 meters, find the perimeter of the original triangle using the proportion 10/3.

b) If the area of the copied triangle is 48 meters squared, use a proportion to find the area of the original triangle.

Please HELP me! I don't really know how I can solve this...
