Q:
# Bradley and Kelly are out flying kites at a park one afternoon. A model of Bradley and Kelly's kites are shown below on the coordinate plane as kites BRAD and KELY, respectively:Kites ADBR and KELY are shown on a coordinate plane. The vertices of ADBR are A is at 5, 2. D is at 1, 4. B is at 5, 6. R is at 6, 4. The vertices of KELY are K at 7, 10. E at 10, 11. L at 13, 10. Y at 10, 1. Which statement is correct about the two kites? They are similar because Segment BR to segment DB is 1:3 and Segment KE to segment YK is 1:3 They are similar because Segment BR to segment DB is 1:2 and Segment KE to segment YK is 1:2. They are not similar because Segment BR to segment DB is 1:2 and Segment KE to segment YK is 1:3. They are not similar because Segment BR to segment DB is 1:3 and Segment KE to segment YK is 1:2.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:They are not similar because Segment BR to segment DB is 1:2 and Segment KE to segment YK is 1:3.Step-by-step explanation:If you draw the kites, you see they have different aspect ratios. The width to length ratio of KELY is greater than for ADBR. So, only the "not similar" answer choices are viable, and the only one of those that makes sense is the one that says ADBR is shorter/fatter than KELY.
