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

    Well, what do you think the 5 matches up with in the bigger triangle?

    And area varies in the square, do you know what I mean by this?

    OK, if you don't know that, do you know the formula for triangle area?

    OK, that is another way to do it, just do that for each triangle and compare the results for your answer.
