What reason justifies why triangle ABC is similar to triangle ADE? SAS, AA, SSS, or the triangles are not similar.

    AA is my guess; your got 2 angles the same; but i dunno how much proof that is

    i was guessing AA also because the sides are smaller

    the crossin glines tells you the angle interior is the same; and the measure of that outside one thats marked is the same...

    um, it is AAA because it is given that angle ABC is equal to angle ADE

    with 2 angles the same; the third is a given i believe

    so it follows that angle AEB is angle ACB since we know sum of internal angles of triangle is 180. so we have AAA congruence or whatever they call it. i did all this a long long time ago :)
