Answer

m=4.5

Work Step by Step

The problem states that the two shapes are similar. This means that all of the sides are proportional. We will call m the side that we want to find. Thus, we set up the equation: m/6=3/4. We multiply both sides of the equation by 6 to get m alone and to obtain that m=4.5
