Step 1
The quadrilateral, UTSR has opposite sides equal and they are 48 & 64
So, the adjacent sides are in the ratio, 48:64 = 3:4
In the quadrilateral, YXWZ, the opposite sides are equal as well and the adjacent sides are in the ratio, 24:32 = 3:4
So, they must be similar.
Step 2
The rule for similarity is, S-S-S-S and the scale factor is, 2 or (12)
And, we have, UTSRXWZY
