If the triangles are similar, which ratio shows the relationship of the area of the larger triangle to the area of the smaller triangle?
1:4
36:1
2:1
6:1
Copying my previous post:
Area of big triangle = 1/2 (6)(12)=36
Area of small triangle = 1/2(2)(1)=1
big triangle area to small triangle area = 36 to 1
