[Channel-talkgeometry] Session 8 Problem A3

Did anyone else have trouble showing these two triangles are similar?
These two triangles LOOK similar, but when I measure them, here is what
I get:
smaller one - sides 3, 4 and 5
larger one - sides 4, 6 and 8

Am I measuring wrong? The solution says they are similar, but these
sides are not in proportion.
