### Complexity=5, Mode=triangle

Find the value of 'n'.
1 n =
Solution
The two triangles are similar because all their angles are the same but their side lengths are different. This means their corresponding sides are proportional.

Use corresponding sides to create a proportion.

 10n = 770 = 660

Solve the proportion for n.
10 × 60 = 6 × n
n = 100

2 n =
Solution
The two triangles are similar because all their angles are the same but their side lengths are different. This means their corresponding sides are proportional.

Use corresponding sides to create a proportion.
