Similarly, in

To prove

Proof: In

Question 4:

Prove that the ratio of areas of two similar triangles is equal to the square of their corresponding sides. Using the above theorem do the following the area of two similar triangles are , if the largest side of the smaller triangle is 27 cm, then find the largest side of the largest triangle.

Area of Two Similar Triangles


Given: Two triangles ABC and DEF such that

To prove:

Construction: Draw and

Proof: Since similar triangles are equiangular and their corresponding sides are proportional



From (i) and (ii) , we get



Let the largest side of the largest triangle be

Using above theorem,
