The ratio of the areas of two similar triangles is 16:9. What is the ratio of the lengths of corresponding sides? Please show your work here.
The ratio of the areas of two similar triangles is 16:9. What is the ratio of the lengths of corresponding sides? Please show your work here.
Area of triangle 1 = 16
Area of triangle 2 = 9
Since area is the only one given I suppose that the triangle is an equilateral
get the sides of T1
16x4=64/square root of 3=36.95 then square the answer give you 6.08
get the sides of T2
9x4=36/square root of 3=20.78 then square the answer give you 4.56
Now get the ration T1:T2
6:5 ^^
