What is the similarity ratio of the smaller to the larger similar prisms ? with SA 18m^2 and SA 50m^2


Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:07 AM

√(18):√(50) = 3√(2) : 5√(2) = 3 : 5
the square root of 18;the square root of 50
you simplify the answer and get…
3 (square root of 2); 5 (square root of 2)
you cancel out the square roots of 2 because they’r the same on both sides…
then you get that the ratio is 3;5.

Religion plays a large part in shaping the different cultural regions of the world. Central and South Asia, East Asia, and Southeast Asia share some of the same religions and religious history, though none of them is a distinct cultural region. In what ways are the religions of these Asian regions culturally similar to one another? In what ways are the regions culturally different due to religion?


Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:26 AM

Each religion has a different culture. Many religions restrict eating certain foods, wearing certain clothes or associating with certain people. In Central Asia, Chinese religion such as Buddhism and many other religions live by certain values, whereas in South Asia such as India, there are a whole new set of different religions. These religions and their restrictions greatly separate people from each other and create socially and culturally diverse regions

Quadrilateral ABCD is similar to quadrilateral EFGH. What is the length of segment BC?


Answer:  The required length of BC is 32 units.

Step-by-step explanation:  Given that the quadrilaterals ABCD and EFGH are similar to each other.

We are to find the length of side BC.

From the figure, we note that

AB = 2x,  CD = 3x – 3, EF = 5.5, FG = 8, GH = 7.5  and  EH = 7.

Since the corresponding sides of similar figures are proportional, so we get

dfrac{AB}{EF}=dfrac{CD}{GH}\\\Rightarrow dfrac{2x}{5.5}=dfrac{3x-3}{7.5}\\\Rightarrow dfrac{2x}{55}=dfrac{3x-3}{75}\\Rightarrow 150x=165x-165\\Rightarrow 165x-150x=165\\Rightarrow 15x=165\\Rightarrow x=dfrac{165}{15}\\Rightarrow x=11.

Also, we can write

dfrac{BC}{FG}=dfrac{CD}{GH}\\\Rightarrow dfrac{BC}{8}=dfrac{3times11-3}{7.5}\\\Rightarrow dfrac{BC}{80}=dfrac{30}{75}\\\Rightarrow BC=dfrac{30}{75}times80\\\Rightarrow BC=dfrac{2}{5}times80\\Rightarrow BC=32.

Thus, the required length of BC is 32 units.

Explain why two right triangles, each with an acute angle of 17°, must be similar


Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:32 AM

A right triangle is a triangle that has 1 90 degree, or “right” angle. Since there are only 3 angles, if you know 2 of the angles, you can subtract them from the total angle amount to get the third angle, which will stay the same in two right triangles if the second angle is the same. This means that they are similar.

Triangle PQR is transformed to similar triangle P’Q’R’. A coordinate grid is shown from negative 10 to 0 to positive 10 on both x- and y-axes at increments of 1. A triangle PQR has P at ordered pair 4, 4, Q at ordered pair 8, 4, R at ordered pair 4 and 8. A polygon P prime Q prime R prime has P prime at ordered pair 1,1, Q prime at ordered pair 2,1, R prime at ordered pair 1, 2. What is the scale factor of dilation?


Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:37 AM

The length of the legs, PQ and PR are 4 units.
The lengths of the legs, P’Q’ and P’R’ are 1 unit.
Since the legs (and triangle) got smaller we know that the scale factor is between 0 and 1.
So.. 4 * x = 1
divide both sides by 4
       x = 1/4
The scale factor is 1/4

In Fisher’s article, the three pieces of evidence that he used to support his viewpoint on space travel to Mars were (fill this in): 1. 2. 3. Spring chose to use these three pieces of evidence in her article to support her view on space travel to Mars (fill this in): 1. 2. 3. PART 2. Answer the questions listed below in complete sentences: 1. Did the authors have similar or opposing views? 2. Did the authors use the same points of comparison? Explain with examples. 3. Did the authors support their views in the same or different ways? Did both focus most on appeals to logic or to emotion?


1. Did the authors have similar or opposing views?

The author had opposing views, because one author said that traveling and studying Mars is important and beneficial to us humans. The other author though, says that Mars investigations are a waste of money and too dangerous.

2. Did the authors use the same points of comparison? Explain with examples.

Yes, the authors did use the same point of comparison. One would be about the radiation being either too dangerous or harmless to us humans. Another would be building architecture on mars such as domes and houses, being either too expensive or useful to study.

3. Did the authors support their views in the same or different ways?

It was different in all areas. One author used facts and studies to prove his point, while the other author used mostly onions and not much resilient on facts to prove a true point.

4. Did both focus most on appeals to logic or to emotion?

One author focused on logic, with explanations and studies on why colonizing Mars would be a good thing. The other author used more emotion and was less focused on logic, with strong, opinionative claims using fear and excitement in his statements.

To prove that all circles are similar you would use the sequence of similarity ______.


Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:49 AM

Two figures are similar are one of them can be obtained from the other with some transformations (reflections, translations, rotations, dilations) . The circle is defined by only one length – the radius.

To prove that all circles are similar you would use the sequence of similarity translation and dilation.
A translation, followed by a dilation with scale factor r2/r1 will map one circle onto the other, thus proving that the circles are similar.

l economic systems (capitalist, communist, or any other) face similar economic problems.

Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 04:07 AM

I would say that the question “How can markets be kept competitive” would not be important for a communist or socialist society as production would not be to meet a world capitalist market price but would be for fulfilling the basic necessities of the people like healthcare and education and food and clothing as well as for mutually beneficial trade with other countries on an equitable basis.

Determine whether the triangles are similar. If so, write a similarity statement and name the postulate or the theorem you used. If not, explain.


A.  If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle, then the triangle are similar. 
The ORDER matters in the similarity statement. The same measures must go in the same order.
ABC ≈ PQR  Angle-Angle Similarity Postulate

b.   Set up the ratios, then reduce to see if they all reduce to the same fraction.
3/18 ; 4/24 ; 5/30
1/6   ;  1/6  ; 1/6
1/6 = 1/6 = 1/6
The sides are proportional so the triangles are proportional.
