Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
There are no tick marks to indicate which angles are congruent between these two similar triangles. I will assume both triangles have the same orientation and that the corresponding parts are follow that orientation.
We use Property Of Similar Triangles to set up our proportion:
4/6 = 5/m
and 4 / 6 = n / 4.5
Solve for m in 4/6 = 5/m, m = 5*6/4 = 15/2 = 7.5
since n = 4.5 * (4/6) = 3
Answer Choice A.) n = 3 and m = 7.5
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
