Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ratio = 5/15 = 1/3 MF = 13^2 5^2= 12 RS = 39^2  15^2 = 36 check ratio = 12/36 = 1/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0more detail; ratio = LM/HR = 5/15 = 1/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was just showing how the 12 was obtained. What is the rest of the problem, do you have to find RS?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since the ratio is 1 to 3, then MF being 12 means RS is 3 times 12 or 36.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The ratio of the perimeters is also 1 to 3 The ratio of the areas is 1 to 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A=1/2 b h A=1/2 12 5=30 for smaller triangle A=1/2 36 15= 270 for the larger their ratio 30/270

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Review the above. Review the meaning of "ratio" and proportion. The method of solution have been presented to you, yet you do not understand or "don't get it" Review the triangle geometry. Good luck, and study and practice.
