The sides are in a ratio of 4 : 1, so if the length of WXYZ is x then the length of ABCD is 4 x , and if the width of WXYZ is y then the width of ABCD is 4 y . Then the areas are in a ratio of } (4 x x )( y 4 y ) } 5 } 16 xy xy } or 16 : 1. 54. } 4 1 } 5 } 4 1 ( ( 3 3 ) ) } 5 } 1 3 2 } or } 4 1 } . The ratio is still 4 : 1. 55. The ratio of the areas is still 16 : 1 since the ratio of the sides is still 4 : 1. 56. No; the corresponding sides are not in proportion. The ratio of the widths is 1 to 1 but the ratio of the heights is 2 to 1. 57. The widths are the same but the height of the 36% rectangle is twice the height of the 18% rectangle, so the ratio of the areas is
