If this is all information given, then PS/AR is apparently constant for all triangles, so you can just pick one.

Show some WORK! Look at ALL of your previous posts. All of them ask for homework help with absolutely no work. This has got to stop.

I admit, perhaps I got a little worked up in that post, especially as his lack of work does not effect me in any way. It is only because I want the poster to actually learn from us at PF, rather than just demand solutions, that we request working. We have repeatedly told the poster to do so. I do however, apologize for the tone of that previous post. Welcome to PF btw Alvyda.

and no need to apologize for your tone. This has become commonplace on pf. I mean.. i haven't been around for long.. but the asking for solutions without showing any previous work is much more rampant now than it was when I joined.

mercedesbenz, just to echo what Gib_Z has already said, the rules here at PF clearly state that you must show your working when asking a question.

This rule is there for your own benefit: first and foremost by detailing your working or thoughts it requires you to think about the problem yourself, thus developing your problem solving skills, which are of vital importance when studying the sciences. Secondly, if we know exactly where your struggling we are better equipped to help you with your work, we can give you targeted advice regarding a specific step, rather than giving you vague conceptual hints, which waste your time and ours.

Since you are new here this is merely a friendly warning. However, don't be surprised if you continue to refuse to show your working that your homework threads will go unanswered by homework helpers. The Homework Template is there for a reason, use it!

Let's not start an argument here, the OP has been warned that he must show his work in future, it's up to him/her if they wish to continue posting here. If the OP continues to refuse to show any effort, then appropriate action will be taken by the mentors.

We all get annoyed at posters who don't show any effort, but this is not the place to discuss it.
