# FIND MISSING LENGTH OF SIMILAR TRIANGLES

Find the missing length. The triangles in each pair are similar.

Problem 1 :

Solution:

Because the above triangle ∆ PQR and ∆ EDC are similar, the ratios of the corresponding sides will be equal.

Problem 2 :

Solution:

Because the above triangle ∆ DCE and ∆ KJL are similar, the ratios of the corresponding sides will be equal.

Let x = DC

Problem 3 :

Solution:

Because the above triangle ∆ ABC and ∆ AKL are similar, the ratios of the corresponding sides will be equal.

Problem 4 :

Solution:

Because the above triangle ∆ HJG and ∆ KJL are similar, the ratios of the corresponding sides will be equal.

Solve for x. The triangles in each pair are similar.

Problem 5 :

Solution:

Because the above triangle ∆ RQP and ∆ FGH are similar, the ratios of the corresponding sides will be equal.
