1. I assume that your wiggle ~ symbol means the triangles are similar. The ratio of the lengths of all corresponding sides is 10/6 = 5/3. PQR therefor has a larger perimeter than FGH by a factor 5/3.
FGH therefore has a perimeter that is 3/5 of 35. That would be 21

Triangle PQR is transformed to triangle P'Q'R'. Triangle PQR has vertices P(3, −6), Q(0, 9), and R(−3, 0). Triangle P'Q'R' has vertices P'(1, −2), Q'(0, 3), and R'(−1, 0). Plot triangles PQR and P'Q'R' on your own
