    I believe it is the first choice because the perimeter of option 1) 22.5+30+37.5 = 90cm and the rest of the other options do not total to 90cm.

    Let x be the number you multiply 3 (of the ratio) to get the real length of that side, then the three sides can be represented by 3x, 4, and 5x. P = 3x + 4x + 5x = 90 12x = 90 x = 7.5 3x = 22.5 4x = 30 5x = 37.5 Answer: 22.5 cm, 30 cm, 37.5 cm
