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 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)
