Two corresponding sides of two similar hexagons are 16 mm and 20 mm.
What is the ratio of the area of the two hexagons?

Name the postulate and two theorems you can use to prove triangle similarity.

  1. ratio of areas of similar figures is ratio of corresponding lengths squared

    20/16 = 5/4 so 25/16
