11-43.

2 triangular prisms, left, Solid, a, labeled as follows: left side of top triangle, 6, right side of top triangle, 9, and right side of front rectangle, y. Solid, b, labeled as follows: left side of top triangle, 8, right side of top triangle, x, right side of front rectangle, 10.Assume that the prisms at right are similar.  

  1. Solve for and .

    Remember that the ratios of corresponding sides are equal if two triangles are similar.

  1. What is the ratio of the corresponding sides of Solid to Solid ?

  2. If the base area of Solid is square units, find the base area of Solid .
