The trapezoids are similar. The area of the smaller trapezoid is 564m^2. Find the area of the larger trapezoid to the nearest whole number.

The smaaler trapezoid is 24m, and the larger trapezoid is 57m.

Possible answers: 576m^2--3,249m^2--3,181m^2--14m^2

Can someone please help?

    area goes as length dimension squared
    A big = A small ( length big/length small)^2

    A big = 564 ( 57/24)^2
    = 564 * 5.64
    = 3181 m^2
