4

  • UnkleRhaukus
right, the larger triangle is four times greater. The sides will be: the square root the this; (√4) times the sides of the smaller tiranlge

*triangle

  • Kaliyah0524
what?
Kaliyah0524
  • Kaliyah0524
the square root of that is 2.. then what
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
the ratio of the Sides of the triangles will equal to the square root of the ratio of the Areas
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
so the side of XYZ are all: 2 times the sides of DEF
Kaliyah0524
  • Kaliyah0524
so 24?

XY = 2 DE

Find XY
Kaliyah0524
  • Kaliyah0524
it's not 24?
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
i don't know how you can get 24, it's way off.

  • Kaliyah0524
are you sure? it's one of the answer choices ... How do I find XY
Kaliyah0524
  • Kaliyah0524
?
Directrix
  • Directrix
From above: XY = 2 DE XY = 2*4 4 is the given length of DE in the diagram XY = ?
Kaliyah0524
  • Kaliyah0524
6?

  • UnkleRhaukus
!!!!!!!
Directrix
  • Directrix
Two times 4 is not 6. Try again.
Kaliyah0524
  • Kaliyah0524
wow . blonde moment.. it's 8
Directrix
  • Directrix
Correct.
Kaliyah0524
  • Kaliyah0524
then what?

@Directrix

Neverming. But thanks both of you for the help
Directrix
