∆ABC is similar to ∆PQR. AB¯¯¯¯¯ corresponds to PQ¯¯¯¯¯, and BC¯¯¯¯¯ corresponds to QR¯¯¯¯¯.
If the length of AB¯¯¯¯¯ is 9 units, the length of BC¯¯¯¯¯ is 12 units, the length of CA¯¯¯¯¯ is 6 units, and the length of PQ¯¯¯¯¯ is 3 units, then the length of QR¯¯¯¯¯ is ______(fill in) units and the length of RP¯¯¯¯¯ is ________(fill in) units.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok first thing i would do is draw out your triangles and fill in the known lengths

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you do that you will see that AB is 9 and PQ is 3 being similar triangles all the angles will work with that ratio. So doing 9/3 which ='s 3 you would divide the other angles by 3 so BC is 12 so divide that and you find QR

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope. Think of it like the last problem this is all just proportions. Think the triangle on the right is 1/3 the size of the other one and you just divide all the lengths on the left by 3 so QR = 4 and Rp = 2
