# Triangle A has sides of lengths #48 ,24 #, and #27 #. Triangle B is similar to triangle A and has a side of length #5 #. What are the possible lengths of the other two sides of triangle B?

Possible lengths of the triangle B are

Case (1) : 5, 5.625, 10

Case (2) : 5, 4.44, 8.89

Are (3) : 5, 2.5, 2.8125

To find the possible lengths of the other two sides of Triangle B, which is similar to Triangle A:

- Determine the scale factor between the corresponding sides of Triangle A and Triangle B. Scale factor = Length of corresponding side in Triangle B / Length of corresponding side in Triangle A.
- Use the scale factor to find the lengths of the other two sides of Triangle B.

Given: Length of the side in Triangle B = 5

Scale factor = 5 / 48 ≈ 0.1042 (Using the length of the shortest sides of both triangles)

Possible lengths of the other two sides of Triangle B: Side 1: 24 * 0.1042 ≈ 2.5008 Side 2: 27 * 0.1042 ≈ 2.8124

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
