Perimeter of $GHJKL=75$
Given pentagon $ABCDE\sim GHJKL$, side $AB$ corresponds to side $GH$. $\frac{AB}{GH}=\frac{6}{9}=\frac{2}{3}$ The ratio of the sides of the pentagons are 2:3. The ratio of the perimeters of the pentagons will also be 2:3. So... $\frac{2}{3}=\frac{50}{x}$ Cross Multiply... $2x=150$ Divide by 2... $x=75$ or The perimeter of $GHJKL=75$
