RATL 1 | Lesson 3 | Try This! (Solutions: Similar Rectangles)

1.Look at your rectangles.

2.  G and E have sides that seem to be proportional; if you multiply the sides in E by 2 you would have the dimensions of G.

3. Use ratios of the sides to determine which pairs of rectangles are similar.  How did your list compare?

A) 3 by 5

B) 4 by 6

C) 6 by 8

D) 5 by 7

E) 8.5 by 11

F) 5.5 by 8.5

G) 4.25 by 5.5

Solutions: G and E are similar rectangles.
