The figure shows three right triangles. Triangles UVW, UZV, and ZVW are similar.
Theorem: If two triangles are similar, the corresponding sides are in proportion.
Using the given theorem, which two statements help to prove that if segment UW is x, then x2 = 13?
Segment UW × segment UZ = 4
Segment UW × segment ZW = 6
Segment UW × segment UZ = 9
Segment UW × segment ZW = 4
Segment UW × segment UZ = 6
Segment UW × segment ZW = 4
Segment UW × segment UZ = 4
Segment UW × segment ZW = 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Since triangle UVW is similar to UZV, then UW/UV = UV/UZ UW. UZ = (UV)^2 = 2^2 =4 Hence option D is right
