Similarity coefficient

In the triangle TMA, the length of the sides is t = 5cm, m = 3.5cm, and a = 6.2cm. Another similar triangle has side lengths of 6.65 cm, 11.78 cm, and 9.5 cm. Determine the similarity coefficient of these triangles and assign similar sides to each other.

Correct answer:

k =  1.9

Step-by-step explanation:

t=5 cm x=6.65 cm  m<t<a x<z<y  k1=x/m=6.65/3.5=1019=1109=1.9 k2=z/t=9.5/5=1019=1109=1.9 k3=y/a=11.78/6.2=1019=1109=1.9  k1=k2=k3  k=k1=1.9
