8 months agoAny idea?

8 months agoi think it might be C

8 months ago|dw:1529708828463:dw| Believe you're right

8 months ago@dude ?

8 months ago@Vocaloid welcome back

8 months ago@princeevee do you have any idea about this ?

8 months agoi'm thinking it's C.

8 months agothat's what i think is the closest to 3/2

8 months agoso my idea that than the top has a width of 3 and length of 8 and similarity ratio of 3/2 so the bottom has width 3*3/2 = ? and length of 8*3/2 = ?

8 months ago@Vocaloid

8 months ago24/3 is still 8

8 months agoexactly

8 months agobut 16 is a multiple of 8

8 months agohow you get this 24/3 ?

8 months ago8*3/2 is 24/2 not 24/3

8 months ago8*3/2 = ?

8 months ago@princeevee do you understand it ? multiply 8*3 and divide by 2

8 months agoand the width the same 3*3/2 = ?

8 months ago@princeevee so in this way what choice is right ?

8 months ago12

8 months agoA?

8 months agoyes the bottom length

8 months agoyes exactly A .

8 months agodo you understand it now ?

8 months agohope helped good luck bye bye

8 months agoalright, thanks..

8 months ago@Vocaloid want to help me a bit more?

8 months agoif you look at the diagram MP and SV are corresponding right? so it either has to be MP/SV or SV/MP depending on which one gives you an answer choice

8 months ago1.3 seems close, i guess

8 months agogood, 1.3

8 months agothe smaller width is 2 it says the scale factor is 3/4 so 2 = 3/4 * large width, solve for large width

8 months agoso, lets see...

8 months agolarge width is being multiplied by 3/4 right? so you just need to divide both sides by 3/4 to isolate what large width is

8 months agoso 5/3/4?

8 months agoif you want to do the length instead that's fine 5/(3/4) = ?

8 months agoremember your rules for dividing fractions, flip the fraction over and change the sign to a multiplication sign 5/(3/4) = 5 * (4/3) = ?

8 months agorules for multiplying fraction: multiply the numerators first 5 * 4 then divide by the denominator 3 20/3 or in other words, 6 2/3

8 months agomaking the first option the only viable choice

8 months ago@Vocaloid

8 months agowe don't know anything about the side lengths of MP , MN, JK, or JL, just the angle between them therefore there's no proof that these two shapes are similar

8 months agotriangle proportionality theorem DB/BC = DE/EF fill in the missing side lengths and see which proportion matches

8 months agoany progress yet? you just need to look at the diagram to see what the side lengths are, plug them into the ratio, and see which answer choice matches the ratio

8 months agoB? sorry, i'm kinda multitasking chores at the moment, continue please

7 months agogood

7 months agothank you.

7 months agoi'm just going to close this to prevent lag
