Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if triangles are similar then corresponding sides are in the same ratio take the longest sides: 12 / 8 = 1.5 and the other pairs of sides 7.5 / 5 = 1.5 7.5 / 5 = 1.5 so they are similar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1similar triangles are the same shape but different size. also corresponding angles are equal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i've only seen SSS with respect to congruent triangles  but as we've shown that sides are in same ratio then SSS makes sense , i suppose

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@vivianrush @cwrw238 is correct The correct answer is A. This way of proving triangles similar is called SSS Similarity. If you show that the lengths of three sides of one triangle are proportional to the lengths of the sides of another triangle, then the triangles are similar. This is one of three ways of proving triangles similar. The others are AA, and SAS Similarity. AA is: if two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle, the triangles are similar. SAS Similarity is: if the lengths of two sides of a triangle are proportional to the lengths of two sides of another triangle, and the included angle of one triangle is congruent to the included angle of the other triangle, then the triangles are similar.
