    the correspond sides are the sides opposite the equal angles

    so x in the small triangle corresponds to 22 in the large one so we can write x / 22 = ?

    The problem asks "similarity ratio of the larger triangle to the smaller one." 1. Use two corresponding sides that have lengths expressed in numbers, not variables. 2. Use the larger side first.

    Then reduce the ratio.

    Correct. Now just reduce it.
