Two corresponding sides of similar polygons have the ratio 5:4. The perimeter of the smaller figure is 40, what is the perimeter of the larger figure...I need help trying to figure this out...and the steps!

    "Similar" is a vague term. If the polygons are congruent (the same shape), then

    5:4::x:40 or

    5/4 = x/40

    Solve for x.
