Which equation can she use as statement 5? x:15 = 28:40 28:12 = x:(x + 15 ) x + 15 = 28 + 12 28:40 = x:(x + 15)

3. atlas

what do you think? Corresponding sides of similar triangles are proportional which means PS:PQ = PT:PR

4. Gabylovesyou

I am not good with proofs

5. Gabylovesyou

like... AT ALL

6. Gabylovesyou

is it C ?

7. Gabylovesyou

@atlas OH WAIT ITS A right? because PS:PQ = PT:PR

8. atlas

PR = x+15

9. Gabylovesyou

Yes and PQ = 28 + 12

10. Gabylovesyou

@atlas

@ParthKohli

13. ganeshie8

14. ganeshie8

that ratio is : \(28 : (28+12)\)

15. ganeshie8

you need to take the other side ratio in similar way

16. ganeshie8

17. Gabylovesyou

x: (x + 15) ?

18. ganeshie8

Yes !!!!

19. ganeshie8

both ratios are equal cuz triangles are similar

20. ganeshie8

\(28 : (28+12) = x : (x+15)\)

21. ganeshie8

yo whats 28+12 ?

22. Gabylovesyou

40

23. Gabylovesyou

so its D

24. ganeshie8

D is \(\large \color{red}{\checkmark}\)

25. Gabylovesyou

28:40 = x:(x + 15)

26. Gabylovesyou

Thanks so much!

27. ganeshie8
