If the triangles are similar, which ratio shows the relationship of the area of the larger triangle to the area of the smaller triangle? Two triangles share a vertex. The left triangle has height measuring 24 and base measuring 15. The right triangle has height measuring 8 and base measuring 5. 5:8 6:1 4:1 9:1
