I have to write which fraction represents the ratio of corresponding sides? There are 2 triangles. One triangle has the measurements 3in., 9in. and 6in. The other triangle is 18in., 54in. and 36in.

Thank you.

**Steve**, Tuesday, March 6, 2012 at 4:11amthe sides of the larger are in the ratio 18/3 = 54/9 = 36/6

That ratio is 6:1 or 6/1

if you compare the smaller to the larger, that would be 1/6

Notice how you have to multiply the first number by 6 to get the second number.

Hope this helps!

9:54

6:36

3*6:18

9*6:54

6*6:36

So the ratio of them is 6/1 or 6
