My question is how long is Diana‘s rope if she cut a length of rope 4 times as much as 12 feet. Use the word problem Chris cut a length of rope that was 12 feet long Diana cut a rope four times as long as Chris’s rope Bonita cut a rope 1/4 as long as Chris’s rope so how long is Diana‘s rope and how long is Bonita’s rope.
call the larger triangle abc
then the smaller triangle cde is similar to abc (all angles are equal, aaa).
ab is the side that is 36, and we wish to find de, the side corresponding to ab
area_cde = area_abc - area_cde --> area_abc / area_cde = 2
let x=length of de
ratio of areas = (ratio of sides)^2
hi how are you doing today, if you need just ask me.
you multiply 4 by 2 and 5 by 2
