# Triangle A has sides of lengths 18 , 32 , and 24 . Triangle B is similar to triangle A and has a side of length 4 . What are the possible lengths of the other two sides of triangle B?

It is not stated which side is the length of 4cm

It could be any one of the three sides.
In similar figures, the sides are in the same ratio.

$18 \text{ "32" } 16$
$\textcolor{red}{4} \text{ "7 1/9" "3 3/9 " } \leftarrow \div 4.5$

$2 \frac{1}{4} \text{ "color(red)(4)" "2 " } \leftarrow \div 8$

$4 \frac{1}{2} \text{ "8" "color(red)(4)" } \leftarrow \div 4$#
