Post a New Question

I'm in 5th grade and here's my question:
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.

    the 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

    3:18 9:54 and 6:36

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

    Hope this helps!

    That's easy 3:18
    9:54
    6:36
    3*6:18
    9*6:54
    6*6:36
    So the ratio of them is 6/1 or 6
