is there pictures or are we sposed to use our imagination?

- anonymous

There are no pictures... I guess we supposed to use our imagination.

- amistre64

is that 2:3 a ration of triangle to triangle? or is it one side of a triangle to another side of the same triangle?

are these right tris or any tris will work?

- anonymous

see area is always proportional to the square of the ratio.
so area will be at a ratio of 4:9

- anonymous

I 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.

Dipankarstudy I'm confused at what you just said to be honest, I kinda bad at math, I missed this whole topic

- amistre64

2:3
---
4:6
so if we have a tri with sides 2 and 3; we can make another with sides 4 and 6 right?

- amistre64

gonna have to take a min and brush up on that terminology :)

- amistre64

ok..... the sides have a 2/3 ratio....got it; let me draw a pic

see 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....

this would be similar tris with a 2:3 ratio

- anonymous

i think u have understood.....

- anonymous

To be honest Im very confused the question seems to be a short answer with the space provided, and not that complicated.

- amistre64

gotta work up to the answer; you wanna know the stuff right?

- anonymous

Yea, but Im very confused and don't understand the question at all. The ratio part and the corresponding sides is really confusing me

- amistre64

we can determine the ration of altitudes by comparing the side*sin ratio

- amistre64

the ration just means that corresponding sides should equal 2/3 when written one on top of the other..

- anonymous

Oh okay

- amistre64

i dont know why i keep sticking that n onto my ratio wird lol

- amistre64

is the 2sin(30) the 3sin(30) a ration of 2/3 ?

- amistre64

in other words: is:
2 sin(30)
------- = 2/3 ?
3 sin(30)

- anonymous

No it isn't I think -_-
