First, recall that in a right triangle, the two shorter sides intersect at the right angle.

if two similar figures have lengths in a given ratio (say

*A*:B), then their areas will have a ratio that is the square of this length ratio (i.e.,*A*^{2}:*B*^{2}). Conversely, if the areas are in a given ratio, then the lengths will be in the square root of that ratio. ( Look at MGMAT CAT 4. q 19) Excellent example.
