Two corresponding sides of similar polygons are in the ratio of 2 : 7. If the area of the smaller figure is 8 square meters, what is the area of the larger figure?

    the areas of similar figures are proportional to the square of their corresponding sides.

    so 8/x = 2^2/7^2
    8/x = 4/49
    etc
