  1. Since perimeter is a linear unit of measurement,
    the perimeters of similar shapes are proportional to the size of the sides

    since the new side is 6 times the old one, the perimeter is 6 times the old one, or 60 ft

    or, the long way ....
    since perimeter of the square is 10 ft, each side is 2.5 ft
    the new side is 6 times as long or 6(2.5) ft or 15 ft
    then 4 sides would give you a new perimeter of 15(4) or 60 ft
