Dora is writing statements as shown to prove that if segment ST is parallel to segment RQ, then x = 12.
Which equation can she use as statement 5?
(3x + 24) : 3x = 85 : 51
(3x + 24) : 51 = 3x : 85
(3x + 24) : 81 = 3x : 51
34 : 24 = 3x : 51
Here is the statement for this: Corresponding sides of similar triangles are in proportion.
