Geometry, please help!
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.
Which of the following changes should she make to the dimensions to correct her error? a. change the length of side RP to 3 feet b. change the length of side CA to 5 feet c. change the length of side RP to 8 feet d. change the length of side CA to 6 feet
@LoveToDance, Have you computed the ratios of the corresponding sides yet?
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: \(\frac{RP}{CA}\) \(\frac{PQ}{AB}\) \(\frac{QR}{BC}\)
@Hero Is it B? (change the length of side CA to 5 feet)
How did you figure it out?
I used ratios haha, thanks!
