for them to be similar the ratio of corresponding sides must be the same PR/AC = 7.5 / 6 and PQ/AB = 5/4 both equal to 1.25
welshfella
  • welshfella
So RQ/CB should be = 1.25 also

so would it be d?

  • welshfella
work it out on your calculator

well 10/CD must be eqaul to 1.25 ( which is the ratio of the other 2 sides in the triangles) so you need to find which length of CD gives you this ratio. it can't be 8.5 because 10/8.5 = 1.17 not 1.25 so try option c = 10/8 what does that equal?

1.25
