Similar triangles

In the triangle DEF is DE = 21cm, EF = 14.7cm, DF = 28cm. The triangle D´E´F´ is similar to the triangle DEF. Calculate the lengths of the sides of the triangle D´E´F´ if the similarity coefficient is one-seventh.

Correct result:

f2 =  3 cm
d2 =  2.1 cm
e2 =  4 cm

Solution:

f=21 cm d=14.7 cm e=28 cm  k=170.1429  k=f2/f  f2=f k=21 0.1429=3 cm
d2=d k=14.7 0.1429=2110=2110 cm=2.1 cm
e2=e k=28 0.1429=4 cm



We would be very happy if you find an error in the example, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies, and please send it to us. We thank you!
