Triangle I has sides with lengths 2 2/3 cm, 4 1/2 cm and 3 cm. Triangle II has sides with lengths 8 cm, 13 1/2 cm and 9 cm. Are these triangles similar? If yes, what is the ratio of correspondence?

• math -

Triangle 1:
2 2/3 : 4 1/2 : 3
= 16:27:18

triangle2:
8:13 1/2:9
= 16:27:18

yes they are similar
the ratio of correspondence is 1:3
(I took the last numbers 3:9 = 1:3)
