Question

Scale factor of the following similar triangles is

  1. fraction numerator 1 over denominator 6 end fraction    
  2. fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction    
  3. fraction numerator 3 over denominator 4 end fraction    
  4. fraction numerator 2 over denominator 3 end fraction    

Hint:

When two triangles are similar, the reduced ratio of any two corresponding sides is called the scale factor of the similar triangles.

The correct answer is: fraction numerator 1 over denominator 6 end fraction


    The ratio of two of the lengths of two corresponding sides are,
    fraction numerator B C over denominator F G end fraction equals fraction numerator 8 over denominator 48 end fraction
    equals fraction numerator 1 over denominator 6 end fraction
    Therefore, Scale factor of the following similar triangles is 1 over 6.
