## eroshea 2 years ago The ratio of areas between two similar triangles is 1:4. if one side of the smaller triangle is 2 units, find the measure of the corresponding side of the other triangle.

1. hartnn

ratio of areas = (ratio of sides)^2

2. hartnn

so ratio of sides = ?

3. eroshea

$\frac{ 1 }{ 4} = (\frac{ 2 }{ x })^2$ what i got there is x=4 so the measure of the corresponding side of the trangle is 4 units?

4. hartnn

yes!

5. eroshea

thank you for the equation ! :))

welcome ^_^
