Expert Answer
We know that if two triangles are similar then the ratio of their corresponding sides are equal.
Hence, if triangle ABC is similar to triangle PQR, we have:
AB/ PQ = BC/ QR = AC/ PR
 
Now, using a property of ratios, we have:
AB/ PQ = BC/ QR = AC/ PR = AB+BC+CA/ PQ+QR+PR
 
Hence, the ratio of the perimeters of two similar triangles is the same as the ratio of their corresponding sides.
