Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are no pictures... I guess we supposed to use our imagination.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is that 2:3 a ration of triangle to triangle? or is it one side of a triangle to another side of the same triangle?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0see area is always proportional to the square of the ratio. so area will be at a ratio of 4:9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think any triangle will work, I'm not sure I copied the question exactly the way it appears on my sheet. I think its talking about sides that correspond.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Dipankarstudy I'm confused at what you just said to be honest, I kinda bad at math, I missed this whole topic

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02:3  4:6 so if we have a tri with sides 2 and 3; we can make another with sides 4 and 6 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok..... the sides have a 2/3 ratio....got it; let me draw a pic

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0see for a similar triangle the sides are in proportion. see the attach ment... where the triangles are similar area of a triangle=base*hight/2; area abc 0.5*bc*ad 2*2  =  =  =4/9 area def .5*fg*eh 3*3 ad and eh are also will be in the same ratio as the trin 'abd' and 'efh' are similar....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this would be similar tris with a 2:3 ratio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To be honest Im very confused the question seems to be a short answer with the space provided, and not that complicated.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yea, but Im very confused and don't understand the question at all. The ratio part and the corresponding sides is really confusing me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can determine the ration of altitudes by comparing the side*sin ratio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the ration just means that corresponding sides should equal 2/3 when written one on top of the other..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is the 2sin(30) the 3sin(30) a ration of 2/3 ?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in other words: is: 2 sin(30)  = 2/3 ? 3 sin(30)
