Triangle A has an area of #18 # and two sides of lengths #5 # and #9 #. Triangle B is similar to triangle A and has a side of length #12 #. What are the maximum and minimum possible areas of triangle B?
Maximum area of triangle B = 103.68
Minimum area of triangle B = 32
To get the maximum area of
Sides are in the ratio 12 : 5.
Hence the areas will be in the ratio of
Maximum Area of triangle
Similarly to get the minimum area, side 9 of
Sides are in the ratio
Minimum area of
