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

    I said the last one because of the pythagorean therom.

    UW = sqrt(13)

    So it can be option b or option D

    Since triangle UVW is similar to UZV, then UW/UV = UV/UZ UW. UZ = (UV)^2 = 2^2 =4 Hence option D is right
