The length of the sides of a triangle are 6, 8 and 9. The shortest side of a similar triangle has length 15. How long are its other sides?

To determine

To find:

Length of sides of triangles.

Explanation

Given:

Length of sides of the triangle are 6, 8 and 9.

Shortest side of a triangle has length 15.

Calculation:

Let us take two similar triangles ABC and PQR,

Above two triangles are similar to each other.

Then,

ABPQ=BCQR=ACPR615=9QR=8PR

Equating the first two terms,

615
