We can find an unknown side of a triangle:-
Similar triangles are objects that have the same shape and angle size, but their side lengths are different. The corresponding sides of triangles, however are in the same length ratio, also called the scale factor. Multiplying the smaller triangle's side length by scale factor will give you the side lengths of the larger triangle. Similarly, dividing larger triangles side lengths by the scale factor will give you the side length of the smaller triangle.
