# If the drawing, △ H J K ∼ △ F G K . If H K = 6 , K F = 8 , and H J = 4 , find H J .

To determine

To calculate: The value of FG.

Explanation

Given:

ΔHJK~ΔFGK.

HK=6,KF=8 and HJ=4.

Approach:

Similarity between Two polygons:

Two polygons are similar if and only if when all pairs of corresponding angles are congruent and all pairs of corresponding sides are proportional.

Calculation:

According to the definition of similar polygon, FG¯HJ¯ and KF¯KH¯
