The flag of Colombia is a rectangle that is 6 ft long with three horizontal strips.

 

A rectangular figure that represents a flag. The rectangle is divided by two horizontal lines. The first horizontal line is drawn dividing the rectangle in half and the top half is shaded yellow. The second horizontal line is drawn halfway between the first horizontal line and the base of the rectangle. The middle section is shaded blue and the bottom section is shaded red.

 

  • The top stripe is 2 ft tall and is yellow.
  • The middle stripe is 1 ft tall and is blue.
  • The bottom stripe is also 1 ft tall and is red.

These triangles are scaled copies of each other.

 

Four right triangles labeled F, B, G, and H. Triangle F has the vertical side labeled 8, the horizontal side labeled 6, and the longest side labeled 10. Triangle B has the vertical side labeled 2, the horizontal side labeled 3 halves, and the longest side labeled 5 halves. Triangle G has the vertical side labeled 4, the horizontal side labeled 3, and the longest side labeled 5. Triangle H has the vertical side labeled 8 thirds, the horizontal side labeled 2, and the longest side labeled 10 thirds.

 

For each pair of triangles listed, the area of the second triangle is how many times larger than the area of the first?
