How to find the area of a right angle triangle with missing sides(many)?

timer Asked: Apr 29th, 2016

Question description

Hello, I have a question about similar figures;

The "initial" right angle triangle has a base of 5 dm. The "image" of a right angle triangle has a height of 24 dm. The area of the "image" is 4 times bigger than the "initial" triangle. I want to know how you find the area of the 'image' (right angle triangle) by using K-ratios. To be more precise, K, K-squared, K-cubed.

Please help me this is very complicated and I don't understand!
