in the diagram vectors OR = 4/5OP, OP = p, and OQ = q and PS:SQ = 1:4
The area of triangle PRS is 5 cm2
. What is the area of ORSQ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1OP=p OR=.8p p=1.25OR OPOR=PR p.8p=PR 1/5p=PR PR/OR=.2P/.8P=1/4 So the triangles are similar by AA similarity. The ratio of the areas of similar triangles is the square of the ratio of the corresponding sides. So (Area of triangle PRS)/(Area of triangle POQ)=1/16 = 5/x Area of triangle POQ=80 Area of Quadrilateral ORSQ= Area of Triangle POQArea of Triangle POS=805=75 dw:1333015750160:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2see its not given but, when i apply the formula to the PRS triangle, the area formula of a triangle its giving and conforming that prs is a right angled triangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Made a typo: Area of Quadrilateral ORSQ= Area of Triangle POQArea of Triangle PRS=805=75. That's what it should say.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0He means ORSQ, you wrote POS or PRS is 75

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0PRS = 80, ORSQ = PRS5 = 75 ;) I know what you're saying

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@RISH SHARMA , do you have the answer? is it 20 cm^2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry, that is what i meant... why don't you look at it this way.... dw:1333019256794:dw triangle PRS is similar to POQ. so theres a dilation factor of 5. so area of POQ must be 125.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since PRS is 5, ORSQ is 125  5.
