A sculptor is designing her new triangular masterpiece.  In her scale​ drawing, the shortest side of the triangular piece to be made measures 8cm. The longest side of the drawing measures 31cm. The longest side of the actual triangular piece to be sculpted must be 13.7m long.  How long will the shortest side of this piece​ be?

13.7 m is to 31 cm    as      x  meters is to 8cm

 

13.7 / 31  * 8 = x = 3.54 meters
