4 cm, 6 cm, and 9 cm, respectively. The shortest side of the actual piece of land is 240m long.

 

Find the lengths of the other two sides.

240 / 4  =  60

 

So.....each side of the triangle on land will be  60  times the length of the side in the photo.

 

the longest side  =  9 * 60  =  540 m

 

the middle side  =  6 * 50  =  360 m

 

(Also.....do notice that the units are different, but it'll work out like this.)
