Double Check!

Someone told me this was A, and they told me how to do it, but I'm having my doubts.

Parth (parthkohli):

Again, two similar triangles. What do you get?

Parth (parthkohli):

I can predict the answer btw. 6,8,10 is a pythagorean triple. Ramp is the hypotenuse i.e 10

OpenStudy (anonymous):

1.5/6 = 2.5/pq

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Dont u get this ashley?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

definitely not A

Parth (parthkohli):

As @him1618 said, it'd be 4 times 2.5 bc 1.5 times 4 is 6.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Why would you multiply it by 4?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

3-4-5 yep.. i didn't even see that @ParthKohli , nice...

Parth (parthkohli):

Proportions are like this, or I told you an alternative.

Parth (parthkohli):

6 is a part of one pythagorean triplet 6,8,10

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Getting it little by little. Hahaha.

Parth (parthkohli):

Haha but generally you should use proportions to solve these kinda probs. Do you know how to solve for proportions?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Cross Multiplication?

Parth (parthkohli):

Yep!
