Isn't that 5:2?
then the area of the top one is 9 and the bigger triangle is 25
\[\frac{ 3^{2} }{ 5^{2}}\]
9/25

I'm sorry i don't understand how you are getting this Mind running me through the first steps?
|dw:1348331540707:dw|

then the pictures above show them on top of each other
How did you get 10?
The ratio of the sides is equal if there are parallel lines
because they are similar
because you are just extending the sides of the smaller one yes?
Oh yes
So the scale used to increase the smaller one is 3:5
so i made one of the sides = 6 and that is an easy ratio to do
i just multipled the ratio by 2
so 6:10
Ohhhh. Okay
and since area is basically multiplying the ratio of the sides
3/5 * 3/5
\[\frac{ 3^2 }{ 5^2 }\]
9/25 is the answer
9/25? not 9:25?
same thing
Ok cool
What if BY = 2, BC = 4?
