# for each pair of similar parallelograms,fid the ratio of two adjacent side lengths in one parallelogram and compare it to the ratio of the corresponding side lengthes in the other parallelogram.

What are they wanting me to do??
A.2m 4m
B.3 m 6m
C.4m 9m
D.2.75m 3.5m
E.4.25 8.5
F.5m 7m
A-C are similar and are all parallelograms....they are square...
D-F are similar and are all parallelograms...they are well...slanted

## The problem is asking you to compare the ratios of the side lengths in similar parallelograms.

For each pair of similar parallelograms, you need to find the ratio of two adjacent side lengths in one parallelogram, and then compare it to the ratio of the corresponding side lengths in the other parallelogram.

In this case, options A, B, and C are similar parallelograms and options D, E, and F are similar parallelograms.

To find the ratios, look at the given side lengths for each parallelogram. For example, in option A, one side length is 2m and the adjacent side length is 4m. Thus, the ratio of these side lengths is 2:4 or simplified to 1:2.

Do the same for each parallelogram and compare the ratios between the corresponding side lengths in the different parallelograms.

## To solve this problem, you need to find the ratio of the adjacent side lengths in one parallelogram and compare it to the corresponding side lengths in the other parallelogram.

Let's start with parallelograms A, B, and C, which are all similar and square-shaped. In a square, all sides are equal in length.

Parallelogram A has side lengths of 2m and 4m.

The ratio of the adjacent side lengths in A is 2m/4m = 1/2.

Now, let's look at parallelogram B, which also has side lengths of 3m and 6m.

The ratio of the adjacent side lengths in B is 3m/6m = 1/2.

Since the ratio of the adjacent side lengths in both A and B is the same, we can say that they have the same proportions. Therefore, the answer is A.

Now let's move on to parallelograms D, E, and F, which are also similar parallelograms but slanted.

Parallelogram D has side lengths of 2.75m and 3.5m.

The ratio of adjacent side lengths in D is 2.75m/3.5m = 0.7857 (rounded to 4 decimal places).

Parallelogram E has side lengths of 4.25m and 8.5m.

The ratio of adjacent side lengths in E is 4.25m/8.5m = 0.5.

Parallelogram F has side lengths of 5m and 7m.

The ratio of adjacent side lengths in F is 5m/7m = 0.7143 (rounded to 4 decimal places).

As you can see, the ratio of the adjacent side lengths in each parallelogram D, E, and F is different. Therefore, the answer is none of the above for parallelograms D, E, and F.
