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^23,249m^23,181m^214m^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
