Explanatory Answer | Q6 2018 Board Paper

Theorem: Ratio of the areas of two similar triangles is the square of the ratio of their corresponding sides.

\\frac{\text{Area of Δ ABC}}{\text{Area of Δ PQR}}) = \\frac{\text{Square of corresponding side of ABC}}{\text{Square of corresponding side of PQR}}) = \\frac{{AB}^2}{{PQ}^2})
\\frac{\text{Area of Δ ABC}}{\text{Area of Δ PQR}}) = \\frac{{AB}^2}{{PQ}^2}) = \\frac{1^2}{3^2}) = \\frac{1}{9})
