# The corresponding sides of triangles ABC and PQR are in the same ratio, that is, $ A B: P Q=A C: P R $. What is the length of $ A C? $

**Given:**

The corresponding sides of triangles ABC and PQR are in the same ratio.

**To do:**

We have to find the length of \( A C \).

**Solution:**

$AB:PQ=AC:PR$

$AC=PR \times \frac{AB}{PQ}$

**The length of AC is $PR \times \frac{AB}{PQ}$.**
