    The design and the photocopy are congruent the length (DA + BC) = 47 - 15 - 17 = 47 - 32 = 15 Now using the Fact that DA:BC = 1:2 you can find the length of DA and BC EH is equal to length of AD.

    can you split up 15 into 2 numbers whose ratio is 1:2?

    one number will be 15 * 1/(1+2) and the other = 15* 2 (1+2)
