### Given the information below, QRS is UVT similar to ?

If so, give the scale factor.
QR= 8 RS = 16 UV = 18 VT= 34 M<T=36 A.No, the triangles are not similar.
B.Yes, the scale factor is 1:2.
C.Yes, the scale factor is 4:9.
D.Yes, the scale factor is 8:17.

$$Look\ at\ the\ picture. \\\\\Delta QRS\sim\Delta UVT\ if\ \frac{|QR|}{|UV|}=\frac{|RS|}{|VT|}\\\\\frac{|QR|}{|UV|}=\frac{8}{18}=\frac{4}{9}\\\\\frac{|RS|}{|VT|}=\frac{16}{34}=\frac{8}{17}\\\\ \ No,\ the\ triangles\ are ot\ similar.$$
