Find the ratio A 1 A 2 of the areas of two similar rectangles ifa) the ratio of the lengths of the corresponding sides is S 1 S 2 = 2 5 .b) the length of the first rectangle is 6 m, and the length of the second rectangle is 4 m.

To determine

(a)

To Find:

The ratio A1A2 of the areas of two similar rectangles

Explanation

Formula Used:

The ratio of the areas of two similar rectangles equals the square of the ratio of the lengths of the corresponding sides; that is, A1A2=(a1a2)2. The concept can be extended to any pair of similar polygons.

Calculation:

The ratio of the lengths of the corresponding sides is S1S2=25

To determine

(b)

To Find:

The ratio A1A2 of the areas of two similar triangles
