# math HELP SOS

If two polygons are similar,how can you find the scale factor from one polygon to the other?Show specific examples.Describe how you find the scale factor from the smaller figure to the enlarged figure.Then,describe how you find the scale factor from the larger figure to the smaller figure.

Divide the larger by the smaller.

Larger area by smaller area that is.

i don't know! that is why i am on this site...duh!

Im doing scale factor enlargement and i need to know how to enlage it by 3quaters thanksxx
