@billj5 u there?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think maybe make a triangle that is dialated by 2/5 the size then find the lower right vertex
Godlovesme
  • Godlovesme
sorry i dont get that :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
i will show you
Godlovesme
  • Godlovesme
ok thanks u so much :D

do you understand this triangle?
Godlovesme
  • Godlovesme
yes thats how i got the length for the hypotenuse :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok perfect, will you please dialate that triangle by 2/5 for me and then inscribe it into the other triangle upper left
anonymous
  • anonymous
what are the length of the two sides after you shrink it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
can you tell me?
Godlovesme
  • Godlovesme
ok hold on im trying to figure it out hmm
anonymous
  • anonymous
to dialate it multiply all sides by 2/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think there are several ways to do this problem
anonymous
  • anonymous
5 *(2/5) is one side 6*(2/5) is other, dont worry about hypotenuse
Godlovesme
  • Godlovesme
2 and 2.4
anonymous
  • anonymous
correct now lets draw that one inside the other
Godlovesme
  • Godlovesme
okiee

its B :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes but do you see why we used 2/5? that will give us the correct ratio 2:3
Godlovesme
  • Godlovesme
yes because 2+3 is 5 :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep, good :)

  • Godlovesme
thanks u sooooooooo much :DDDDD
