Two corresponding sides of similar polygons are in the ratio of 5:4. If the perimeter of the smaller figure is 40, what is the perimeter of the larger figure?

  • Math -

    The ratio is 5:4. Therefore, anything with a measure of 4 in the smaller has a measure of 5 in the larger.

    So what would something with a measure of 40 in the smaller have in the larger?
