## anonymous one year ago PLEASE HELP!!!! If ABC~XYZ, what is the measure of a? Let c=12, z=18 and x=27 😩

well if the triangles are similar then the ratios of the corresponding sides are the same so $\frac{a}{x} = \frac{c}{z}$ using the values $\frac{a}{27} = \frac{12}{18}$ just solve for x

Ohh ok thank you! ;))
