What is the ratio of the area of triangle XBY to the area of triangle ABC for the given measurements, if XY is similar to AC?

  • Geometry -

    BY=3, YC=2

  • Geometry -

    the ratio of area is proportional to the square of the sides
    which would be 3^2/2^2 = 9/4
    or as a ratio 9 : 4

  • Geometry -

    i don't seem to understand the concept

  • Geometry -

    Area1/Area2 = (side1)^2/(side2)^2

  • Geometry -

    so 4/9 ?

  • Geometry -

    yes, I had 9/4 since you gave your sides as 3 and 2

    Obviously the bigger area goes with the bigger side.

    I am sure you can now do the others that are similar to this
