# Triangle A has sides of lengths #18 ,3 3 #, and #21 #. Triangle B is similar to triangle A and has a side of length #14 #. What are the possible lengths of the other two sides of triangle B?

##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

When two triangles are similar, the ratios of the lengths of their corresponding sides are equal.

So,

Possible lengths of other two sides are:

#x = 33 × 14/18 = 77/3#

#y = 21 × 14/18 = 49/3#
