Two triangles are similar. The perimeter and area of the smaller triangle are $2$. The perimeter of the larger triangle is $3$. What is the area of the larger triangle?

2.

The areas of three of four triangular regions are given in the diagram. What is the area of the remaining region?

3. As shown in the diagram, \(PQ/QR=1/3.\) Find \([PAB]/[QAB].\)

4. If \(CE:EA:AD:DB=2:3:4:5,\) then what is \([ACD]/[ABE]\)?

2.

The two triangles at the bottom of the figure are under the same height.....similarly...the remaining triangles are also under the same height

The base of the bottom right triangle with an area of 5 has the same base as the triangle with an area of 25

Thus.....the height of the larger triangle must be 5 times that of the smaller one

Similarly....the base of the bottom left triangle with an area of 2 has the same base as the triangle with the unknown area....and the height of the unknown triangle is also 5 times that of this smaller triangle....so....its area = 10

[ ACD] = (1/2)(AD)(AC) sin CAD

[ABE] = (1/2)(AE)(AB) sin EAB

Sin CAD = Sin EAB

So

[ ACD ] / [ ABE ] = (AD) (AC) (4)(5) 20

_________ = ______ = ____

(AE) (AB) (3)(9) 27

For non-trig...

This was a hard one for me, too.

Derived from AoPS.

You are very welcome!
