  1. What is the ratio of side length  to side length 

  1. Use a ratio to compare the perimeters of  and . How is the perimeter ratio related to the side length ratio?

    In part (a), you found that the zoom factor between the two triangles is .
    Now use this information to find the perimeters of each triangle, then find the ratio between them.

  1. If you have not already done so, find the length of .
