Kyra is using rectangular tiles of two types for a floor design. A tile of each type is shown below:
Which statement is correct? The two tiles are not similar because segment SP is to segment SR is 4 : 7 and segment MJ is to segment ML is 1 : 3. The two tiles are similar because segment PQ is to segment QR is 4 : 3 and segment JK is to segment KL is also 4 : 3. The two tiles are similar because segment SR is to segment ML is 7 : 4 and segment PQ is to segment JK is also 7 : 4. The two tiles are not similar because segment PQ is to segment QR is 7 : 4 and segment JK is to segment KL is 4 : 3.
~_~ im stumped!
look at the picture, u are given the coordinates of the 4 corners of a tile. so u can calculate the length n width of each tile. then u can look at their ratios to see if the tiles are similar or not.
i can cross out the second one?
@.Gjallarhorn. there is no need to guess here and u cant cross out any choice until u go through n calculate the lengths n widths of the two tiles.
length of big one is 7 width is 4
ok good job! how about the small one?
length of small one is 4 width is 3
GREAT - so which is the right ans then?
Correct - good job @.Gjallarhorn. :)
THANK YOU SO MUCH :))
