1-24.

Consider triangles ABC and ADE at right. Give a convincing argument why $∆ABC\sim∆ADE$. Then use what you know about similar triangles to complete each of the following ratios for the triangles. Homework Help ✎

1. $\frac { y } { x } = \frac { ? } { ? }$

Notice that y and x are the longer and shorter legs of $ΔABC$.

Remember that $ΔABC$ and $ΔADE$ are similar, which means their sides are proportional.

$\frac{y}{x}=\frac{n}{m}$

2. $\frac { n } { y } = \frac { ? } { ? }$

Notice that both n and y are the short legs in both triangles
