If ∆ ABC ~ ∆ DEF, BC = 12 cm, EF = 10 cm, and AC = 18 cm, find DF.

  • Math - ,

    The triangles are similar (but not congruent).

    That means that corresponding sides are all in the same ratio.
    BC/EF = 12/10 = AC/DF = 18/DF

    DF = 18*(5/6) = 15

  • Math - ,

    by ratios

    DF/10 = 18/12

    solve for DF
