triangles

Expert Answer:

remember that the ratio of  perimeters of  two similar triangles is  equal to the ratio of their corresponding sides

so,(aasuming that  ABC is similar to PQR)

AB/PQ=perimeter ABC/perimeterPQR

So, we get,

36/24=AB/10

Solving this will give you the value of AB.

Pl check the question. The word 'similar' may be missing.
