Since triangles ABC and PQR  are similar ,

So according to question .

Let a side of triangle ABC be 4y and that of PQR is 5y.

We know that for two similar triangles the ratio of areas is equal to the ratio of squares of their corresponding sides.

Let the area of triangle ABC  is S and that of triangle PQR is S’.
