What one additional piece of information would prove ΔTSU ~ ΔHGI?
A. T @ H
B. U @ I
C. GI is twice the length of SU.
D. Any of these would be sufficient to prove the triangles similar.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there is supposed to be an undefined symbol in front of T and H in A. and an undefined symbol in front of U and I in B.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the @ symbols are just itself on its own , nothing else added to those .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1very well, you familiar with ASA, AAS, SAS similarity postulates ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1according to them, any of the given A, B or C is sufficient to prove triangles are similar, refer these postulates, and see how these can be applied here

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i never really understood the similarity postulates . can you help me out ? @ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sure :) we have below postulates 1) AA similarity 2) SSS similarity 3) SAS similarity 4) AAS similarity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first, let me ask u a question, what these postulates say in general ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hm .. that they're similar ? idk ..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1each of the postulate tells us "how to figure out if two triangles are similar"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for example, il draw two triangles, if i ask u to figure out if they are similar or not, what you will u do ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1are the two triangles similar ?

alainabbyboo22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes because the triangles are the same shape but different sizes so it would be SSS similarity ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Perfect ! you knew it already ! its SSS similarity postulate coz, the ratio of sides is constant. 2/1 = 2/1 = 2/1 = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since all 3 SIDES of first trianlge are proportional to all 3 SIDES of second triangle, the two triangles are simiular by SSS similarity postulate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1SSS you understood already, so lets move on to something else
