 Question 498571: suppose rectangles Q and R are similar. the dimension of rectangle Q are 8 cm and 20 cm. the area of rectangle R is 2250 square cm . what are the dimension of rectangle R?Answer by cleomenius(959)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The area of the smaller rectangle is 160 cm sq. 2250/160 = 14.065. is our scale factor. 3.75 is our scale factor. 8 * 3.75 = 30, one dimension. 20 * 3.75 = 75, the other dimension. 30 cm *75 cm = 2250 cm. This does check. Cleomenius.
