The perimeter will scale by the same factor.

Perimeter will scale by the same factor. Area of the new figure, however is the original figures area multiplied by the scale factor squared. .

The answer will depend on how big the two figures are!

Perimeter = Circumference/2+Diameter Perimeter = (pi*14)/2+14 = 35.99114858cm or 36cm correct to two significant figures.

yes. if the two figures are the same size and shape, then they are similar

No, in general that is not true. For two similar figures it is true. But you can easily design two different figures that have the same perimeters and different areas, or the same area and different perimeters. For example, two rectangles with a different length-to-width ratio.

You would look at the side lengths and the scale factor to find a pair of similar figures :)

If all angles of two polygons are the same the figures are similar (irrespective of rotation).

Corresponding sides of similar figures are proportional.

no because if they are conmgruent then they are similar

Two figures are similar if: - The measures of their corresponding angles are equal. - The ratios of the lengths of the corresponding sides are proportional.

If two polygons are similar then the ratio of their perimeter is equal to the ratios of their corresponding sides lenghts?
