Explanation

An equilateral triangle has equal side lengths, so the ratio is always going to be 1:1.

Plug numbers for side length of T and X:

Side length of $$T = 6$$ So $$6 : 6 = \frac{6}{6}= 1:1$$.

Side length of $$X = 1$$ $$1 : 1 = \frac{1}{1}= 1:1$$.

Hence option C is correct.

Plug numbers for side length of T and X:

Side length of $$T = 7$$ $$7 : 7 = \frac{7}{7}= 1:1$$.

Side length of $$T = 4$$ $$4 : 4 = \frac{4}{4}= 1:1$$.

Hence option C is correct.

The length of each side of equilateral triangle T is 6 times the length of each side of equilateral triangle X

A: The ratio of the length of one side of T to the length of another side of T
T is an equilateral triangle which means all of its edges have the same size, it we call its edges a, b and c they are all the same size and we call it t. So A equals t/t =1

B: The ratio of the length of one side of X to the length of another side of X
Just the same as A, it equal
