Construction 11.2 : To construct a triangle similar to a given triangle as per given scale factor.
There are two general cases
- Triangle to be constructed is smaller than given triangle (Example 1)
- Triangle to be constructed is larger than given triangle (Example 2)
Scale Factor Â means ratio of the sides of the triangle to be constructed with the corresponding sides of the given triangle
Scale Factor = (Side of to be constructed triangle)/(Side of given triangle)
