Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8You have three triangles. A small right triangle on the right UVW, and a medium size right triangle on the left UTW and large right triangle TVW, First, match the corresponding angles of the triangles. In the order left triangle, right triangle, large triangle, what are the vertices that are the right angle?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is the answer the second one? ΔUVW ~ ΔWUT ~ ΔWVT?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8No. Can you answer my question above?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, I was kind of confused, because there are three right angles. So it is either TWV or TUW, or VUW

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I guess that means the answer would be the last one, right? Gosh I'm really bad at geometry, I apologize

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8Good. Now let's do the same for another angle of the three triangles. Answer these three questions. For triangle UVW, which is vertex of small leg & hypotenuse?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8The next series of three questions is which is the vertex of the long leg & hypotenuse for each triangle. I already filled in the info. dw:1359701955366:dw
