@LoveToDance, Have you computed the ratios of the corresponding sides yet?

  • anonymous
No, I'm not sure how to solve this.

Hint: To find the ratios of the corresponding sides of two similar triangles, notice that: RP corresponds to CA PQ corresponds to AB QR corresponds to BC Next compute: \(\frac{RP}{CA}\) \(\frac{PQ}{AB}\) \(\frac{QR}{BC}\)
