Two redtangles are similar. One has a length of 11 cm and a width of 6 cm, and the other has a width of 5 cm. Find the length of the second rectangle. Round to the nearest tenth if necessary.

Please type your subject in the School Subject box. Any other words, including obscure abbreviations, are likely to delay responses from a teacher who knows that subject well.

"Similar" shapes keep the same ratio of side lengths, although the sizes may be different. One is a magnified version of the other.
The Length/Width ratio of each rectangle is the same
In your case, 11/6 = x/5
Solve for the unknown length x, and round to nearest onetenth cm.
