Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If two triangles are similar, then the ratios of their sides will be equivalent. Which means the ratio of their perimeters will be equal to that ratio. The ratio of ST/WX = 1.2 , Therefore, the ratio of the perimeters will also be 1.2. Knowing all of this, we can set up a proportion to find out the perimeter of the WZX: ST/WX = SRT/WZX 6/5 = 15/x 6x = 75 x = 75/6 x = 12.5
