Question 10 It is given that βˆ† ABC ~ βˆ† PQR, with BC/QR = 1/3. Then, (π‘Žπ‘Ÿ (𝑃𝑅𝑄))/(π‘Žπ‘Ÿ (𝐡𝐢𝐴)) is equal to (A) 9 (B) 3 (C) 1/3 (D) 1/9 We know that For similar triangles, ratio of Area of triangle is equal to the ratio of square of corresponding sides (π΄π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘Ž π‘œπ‘“ βˆ† 𝐴𝐡𝐢)/(π΄π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘Ž π‘œπ‘“ βˆ† 𝑃𝑄𝑅)=(𝐡𝐢)^2/(𝑄𝑅)2 (π΄π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘Ž π‘œπ‘“ βˆ† 𝐴𝐡𝐢)/(π΄π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘Ž π‘œπ‘“ βˆ† 𝑃𝑄𝑅)=(𝐡𝐢/𝑄𝑅)^2 (π΄π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘Ž π‘œπ‘“ βˆ† 𝐴𝐡𝐢)/(π΄π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘Ž π‘œπ‘“ βˆ† 𝑃𝑄𝑅)=(1/3)^2 (π΄π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘Ž π‘œπ‘“ βˆ† 𝐴𝐡𝐢)/(π΄π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘Ž π‘œπ‘“ βˆ† 𝑃𝑄𝑅)=1/9 But, we need to find ratio (π‘Žπ‘Ÿ (𝑃𝑅𝑄))/(π‘Žπ‘Ÿ (𝐡𝐢𝐴)) (𝒂𝒓 (𝑷𝑹𝑸))/(𝒂𝒓 (𝑩π‘ͺ𝑨)) = 9 So, the correct answer is (A)
