Answer:

GH = 22.5

Step-by-step explanation:

Since ∆ABC is similar to ∆FGH, therefore:

 \frac{AC}{FH} = \frac{BC}{GH}

Plug in the values

AC = 12 cm

FH = 18 cm

BC = 15 cm

GH = ??

Plug in the values

 \frac{12}{18} = \frac{15}{GH} .

Cross multiply

12*GH = 270

Divide both sides by 12

GH = 22.5
