If triangle ABC is similar to triangle DEF and the perimeter of ABC is 4 times greater than the perimeter of DEF , what is the relationship between the areas of the triangles?

• Math -

since perimeter is linear, the sides are in the ratio of 4:1
So the areas are in the ratio of 4^2 : 1^2 = 16 : 1
