  1. I believe the correct answer to VH should be 18 given that the ratios between the 2 corresponding sides is 1 : 2

    So, the corresponding sides are 3 : 6 , 5 : 10 and therefore the 3 pair of corresponding sides should be 9 : 18?

    Please confirm or show where I made my mistake in my calculation or assumption?
