Two corresponding sides of similar polygons are in the ratio of 8:7. If the area of the smaller figure
is 512 square meters, what is the area of the larger figure?

Area is proportional to the square of linear dimensions, for similar figures.
(8/7)^2 * 512 = 668.7 m^2 is the area of the larger similar polygon.
