|dw:1358972796036:dw| Use the fact, that in a right triangle, sum of two acute angles is also 90degrees.
So you calculate all the angles like that and then, of course, triangles are similar when they have all the same angles.
Okay...so angles M and L are congruent and angles M and J are congruent.
Which angle M? There are three, actually.
|dw:1358973172740:dw| These are the three triangles, right?
Yes, they are similar. But I see that in your question, you need to write vertices in correct order, so that for example, when you have ABC ~ DEF, then angle A in triangle ABC is the same as angle D in triangle DEF, angle B in ABC is the same as E in DEF and so on.
Yes, so be turning one of the triangles around so that they appear to be in the same order it would look like this I believe. |dw:1358973468634:dw|
So what would your answer be?
The last one; JKM ~ MKL ~ MJL.
Thanks a lot! :)
The last one should be JML, actually. :)
I understand. :)
In the diagram, right?
