Proportional Triangles That Overlap

Proportional Triangles That Overlap There is a little triangle inside a big triangle. Since one set of sides are parallel, the triangles are similar. little side 1 6 4x-5 4x = 40 Set up ratios of corresponding sides(those are the sides that overlap). Cross multiply .......................... and divide. Clean up any remaining algebra. 4 big side 1 • +5 (4x-5) =+5 35 4 =(14) =little side 2 • x = 10 big side 2 (15) (4x-5) 4x-5 14 =(14) =6 • (15) 15 6 Answer: Proportional Triangles That Overlap little side 1 big side 1 =Set up ratios of corresponding sides(those are the sides that overlap).
