Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Third side. Two triangles are said to be similar if ... The corresponding sides of similar triangles have lengths ... Using right triangles and the concept of similarity,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3If two triangles are similar, they have the same shape but not the same size.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So now we must label them and write the similarity statement.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3When you write the similarity statement, corresponding parts must be in the same order. So we would write: dw:1326222700581:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3To describe the sides we would say that the ratio of side AB to side DE is equal to the ratio of side BC to side EF which is equal to the ratio of side AC to side DF.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i need side lengths thow...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I don't think you do. It said to describe the side lengths not to say what they are.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but how do you prove that they ar e similar then?

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3And the description is that corresponding sides are proportional or that they have the same ratio which is another way of saying the same thing.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3We do not have to prove they are similar. It said to draw two similar triangles. Not to prove that two triangles are similar.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The reason for this assignment is to see if you know what similar triangles are and how they look and how to write the similarity statement and if you know that the corresponding sides have the same ratio.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but if you look at the end of the question, it says describe the side lengths of the triangles you have created

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Now look at those triangles. What must you do to side DE to get side AB?

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3And what must you do to side EF to get side BC?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3And what must you do to side DF to get AC?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Exactly. That means that if you put 10/5 that is the same as 12/6 which is the same as 8/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3That's the way similar triangles always are.

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3If you divide the corresponding sides you always get the same number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3And that is the description of the lengths of the sides of similar triangles.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3That's all you have to do for the description.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3You still have to do part 1 where you draw the picture and write the similarity statement.

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Also you need to know that in similar triangles, the corresponding angles are congruent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know i am doing that now. But for the lengths i just write " the triangles are half the lengths of the other"?????

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Are you going to answer me? I'm trying to help you understand that to describe the lengths of the sides, you don't have to tell how long the sides are.
