Ratio of two triangles

posted by .

What would the ratio be if the first triangle has sides of 4cm, 8cm, and 12cm and the second triangle had sides of 1cm, 2 cm, and 3 cm? Would the ratio be 4:1 or 1:1/4?

  • Ratio of two triangles -

    first:second is 4:1
    second:first = 1:4

    When you want a ratio, you need to specify which to which

    The first value is in the numerator, the second in the denominator. The colon (:) takes the place of the word "to".
