Given that the pair of triangles is similar, find the length of the side labeled n.
Since the triangles are similar, corresponding sides are in proportion. thus , the ratio of 40 to 70 is the same as the ratio of n to 14.
To find the unknown length, we solve for n.
70 * n = 40*14
70*n = 560
We solve for n by dividing both sides of the equation by 70.
Simplify to get the unknown length n.
n = 8
