    They're similar so the ratio of corresponding sides is the equal |dw:1436909858081:dw|

    16 = 3EH then divide by 3 for the answer

    I'd leave it as 16/3 unless they ask for a decimal

    Should it be \[\frac{CD}{GH}=\frac{AD}{EH}\]

    It asks for numerical answers could you guys help me with another question? These were the only two I am stuck on Quadrilateral ABCD in the figure below represents a scaled-down model of a walkway around a historic site. Quadrilateral EFGH represents the actual walkway. ABCD is similar to EFGH.
