Triangle ABC and triangle ADE are similar. Calculate in square centimeters the area of triangle ABC if the length of side DE is 12 cm, the length of side BC is 16 cm, and the area of triangle ADE is 27 cm2.

Correct answer:

S1 =  48 cm2

Step-by-step explanation:

S2=27 cm2 DE=12 cm BC=16 cm  r=BC/DE=16/12=341.3333  S1:S2 = r2  S1=S2 r2=27 1.33332=48 cm2
