jordin 2 years ago triangle A,B,C is similar triangle S,T,R . Gary builds the proportion below to solve for the missing side AB. Explain what mistake Gary made and how you would correct it. AB OVER BC = ST OVER SR

1. hartnn

when triangles are similar , "corresponding " sides are proportional AB corresponds to ST BC corresponds to TR so can u now find the error?

2. hartnn

so it actually should be $$\frac{AB}{BC}=\frac{ST}{TR}$$
