PART A)find x using the ratio of the sides 12 cm and 16 cm: x/20=12/16. Show your work

PART B) find x using the ratio of the sides 6 cm and 8 cm. Show your work

PART C) Explain why the answers to a and b should be the same

The triangles are
1st one x,12 cm, 6cm,
the 2nd one is 20 cm, 16 cm, 8 cm,

thanks

1. Noob Seriously nice copy and paste from connections academy -o- that test is hard stay determined

2. a) 1. x/20 = 12/16 2. 12 * 20 = 240 3. 240 / 16 = 15 4. (doublecheck) 15 * 16 = 240 x = 15
b) 1. x/20 = 6/8 2. 6 * 20 = 120 3. 120 / 8 = 15 4. (doublecheck) 15 * 8 = 120 x = 15
c) In A and B x should equal the same number because in both you are looking for x and it cant magically change its value
NOTE: PLEASE take the time to understand the problem. Write it in YOUR OWN words
