    An architect planned to construct two similar stone pyramid structures in a park. The figure below shows the front view of the pyramids in her plan but there is an error in the dimensions.

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

    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: \(\frac{RP}{CA}\) \(\frac{PQ}{AB}\) \(\frac{QR}{BC}\)
