# Ratio + similarity of triangles - examples

On solving problems and tasks with proportionally we recommend hint rule of three. Rule of three (proportionality) help solve examples of direct and inverse proportionality. Three members makes possible to calculate the fourth - unknown member.- MO - triangles

On the AB and AC sides of the triangle ABC lies successive points E and F, on segment EF lie point D. The EF and BC lines are parallel and is true this ratio FD:DE = AE:EB = 2:1. The area of ABC triangle is 27 hectares and line segments EF, AD, and DB se - Sun rays

If the sun's rays are at an angle 60° then famous Great Pyramid of Egypt (which is now high 137.3 meters) has 79.3 m long shadow. Calculate current height of neighboring chefren pyramid whose shadow is measured at the same time 78.8 m and the current hei - Similarity of squares

The ratio of the similarity of the squares ABCD and KLMN is 2.5. Square KLMN area is greater than area of a square ABCD with side a: ? - Rectangular triangles

The lengths of corresponding sides of two rectangular triangles are in the ratio 2:5. At what ratio are medians relevant to hypotenuse these right triangles? At what ratio are the contents of these triangles? Smaller rectangular triangle has legs 6 and 8 c - Tree shadow

Tree perpendicular to the horizontal surface has a shadow 8.32 meters long. At the same time meter rod perpendicular to the horizontal surface has shadow 64 cm long. How tall is tree? - Tree shadow

The shadow of the tree is 16 meters long. Shadow of two meters high tourist sign beside standing is 3.2 meters long. What height has tree (in meters)? - MO Z9–I–2 - 2017

In the VODY trapezoid, VO is a longer base and the diagonal intersection K divides the VD line in a 3:2 ratio. The area of the KOV triangle is 13.5 cm^{2}. Find the area of the entire trapezoid. - Isosceles trapezoid

In an isosceles trapezoid KLMN intersection of the diagonals is marked by the letter S. Calculate the area of trapezoid if /KS/: /SM/ = 2:1 and a triangle KSN is 14 cm^{2}. - Sides od triangle

Sides of the triangle ABC has length 4 cm, 5 cm and 7 cm. Construct triangle A'B'C' that are similar to triangle ABC which has a circumference of 12 cm. - Sides ratio

Calculate the circumference of a triangle with area 84 cm^{2}if a:b:c = 10:17:21 - Display case

Place a glass shelf at the height of 1m from the bottom of the display case in the cabinet. How long platter will we place at this height? The display case is a rectangular triangle with 2 m and 2.5 m legs. - Shadow

A meter pole perpendicular to the ground throws a shadow of 40 cm long, the house throws a shadow 6 meters long. What is the height of the house?
