Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2lets say area of smaller rectangle is A1 and larger A2, now the ratio of areas is given as follows \[\frac{ A _{1}}{ A _{2} }=\frac{ 3*9 }{ 5*15 }=\frac{ 9 }{ 25 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Find the area of smaller rectangle first by putting length = 3 ft. and breadth = 9 ft. then find the area of larger rectangle. You can find the ratios of the areas by : \(\cfrac{\textbf{Area of smaller rectangle}}{\textbf{Area of Larger rectangle}} = \textbf{Required ratio}\)
