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?

• geometry -

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.
