    Answer:

    The longest length of the similar triangle is 7 inches

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If two triangles are similar, the ratio of their sides are equal

    We shall be working the shortest and longest side of both

    What we have here will be that;

    The shortest length/ the longest length ratio in both triangles will be the same

    Let the longest side of the similar triangle be x

    8/14 = 4/x

    8x = 4 * 14

    x = (4 * 14)/8

    x = 7 inches
