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.

    there 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.

    the @ symbols are just itself on its own , nothing else added to those .

    very well, you familiar with ASA, AAS, SAS similarity postulates ?

    according 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

    sure :) we have below postulates 1) AA similarity 2) SSS similarity 3) SAS similarity 4) AAS similarity

    each of the postulate tells us "how to figure out if two triangles are similar"

    for example, il draw two triangles, if i ask u to figure out if they are similar or not, what you will u do ?

    are the two triangles similar ?

    yes because the triangles are the same shape but different sizes so it would be SSS similarity ?

    Perfect ! you knew it already ! its SSS similarity postulate coz, the ratio of sides is constant. 2/1 = 2/1 = 2/1 = 2

    since all 3 SIDES of first trianlge are proportional to all 3 SIDES of second triangle, the two triangles are simiular by SSS similarity postulate
