  7. a. Using the ratio of the sides 12 cm and 16 cm
    x/20 = 12/16

    x = (12(20)) / 16 = 15

    b. Using the ratio of the sides 6 cm and 8 cm

    x/20 = 6/8

    x = (6(20)) / 8 = 15

    c. The answer is the same since the ratio 12/16 and 6/8 is both equal to 3/4.
    here you guys go no more F's uwu
