Construction 11.2 :  To construct a triangle similar to a given triangle as per given scale factor.

There are two general cases

  1. Triangle to be constructed is smaller than given triangle  ( Example 1 Scale factor < 1 )
  2. Triangle to be constructed is larger than given triangle    ( Example 2 Scale factor > 1 )

Scale Factor   means ratio of the sides of the triangle to be constructed with the corresponding sides of the given triangle
