  1. Perimeter is a linear measurement.
    The perimeter or sides of similar shapes are in direct proportion to the lengths of the sides.
    so ....
    side of larger is 25, or the perimeter is 150
    5/2 = 150/x
    5x = 300
    x = 60 <----- perimeter of smaller

    check:
    150 : 60
    = 15:6
    = 5 : 2

  3. You need to convert 60 inches to measurement in feet.
    How many feet are in 60 inches?
