The perimeters of two similar triangles are 24 cm and 18 cm respectively. If one side of the first triangle is 8 cm, then the corresponding side of the other triangle is
A. 4 cm

B. 3 cm

C. 9 cm

D. 6 cm

Answer :


Given: Perimeter (ABC) = 24 cm2, Perimeter (DEF) = 18 cm2 and BC = 8 cm


Perimeters of two similar triangles are in the ratio 24:18 = 4:3


We know that if two triangles are similar, then the ratio of the corresponding sides is equal to the


ratio of the corresponding perimeters.
