    ince triangles QRS and TUV are similar triangles

    QR/TU = RS /UV = SQ / VT

    QR / TU = RS / UV

    => 10 / 6 = 14 / UV

    => UV = 8.4

    similarly

    VT = 16*6/10 =9.6

    therefore

    perimeter = TU + UV + VT = 6 + 8.4 + 9.6 = 24

    perimeter of triangle QRS is III to triangle TUV

    so

    perimeter of QRS/perimeter of TVU = QR/TU --------(1)

    perimeter of QRS =10+14+16=40

    let perimeter of TVU be X

    from (1)

    40/X =10/6

    X=24

    perimeter of TUV = 24

    If it says 'mathematically comparable' this suggests they are in ration with one yet another, as an occasion each and every 1cm on QRS is 4cm on TUV whiochever area is the comparable area as TU on QRS, artwork out what you divide it via to get 6. Then divide the different numbers via thi answer, and upload them to get the fringe. its uncomplicated once you realize how!

    QR/TU=10/6

    P=premeter of QRS=10+14+16=40

    P'=perimeter of TUV

    P/P'=10/6=40/P'

    10P'=240

    P'=24

    God bless you.
