Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if the length and sides are equal than they should be simalar?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0basically if you have one polygon where all of the sides are 10 and the same shape where all of the sides are 5 then they are similar because if you can multiply the sides of the smaller one by one number (2) to get all of the sides to match up with the larger one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That is not sufficient. This only holds for triangles. For other polygons you have to check that the inner angles are the same!
