What similarity statement can you write relating the three triangles in the diagram below? (1 point) ΔUVW ~ ΔUWT ~ ΔWVT ΔUVW ~ ΔWUT ~ ΔWVT ΔWUT ~ ΔVUW ~ ΔWVT ΔTWV ~ ΔWUV ~ ΔUWT
1. What similarity statement can you write relating the three triangles in the diagram below? (1 point) ΔUVW ~ ΔUWT ~ ΔWVT ΔUVW ~ ΔWUT ~ ΔWVT ΔWUT ~ ΔVUW ~ ΔWVT ΔTWV ~ ΔWUV ~ ΔUWT
You 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?
Is the answer the second one? ΔUVW ~ ΔWUT ~ ΔWVT?
No. Can you answer my question above?
Well, I was kind of confused, because there are three right angles. So it is either TWV or TUW, or VUW
So I guess that means the answer would be the last one, right? Gosh I'm really bad at geometry, I apologize
For the left right triangle, which vertex is the right angle?
U. The left triangle as in triangle TUW?
correct. Now for the right triangle, UVW, which vertex is the right angle?
right. Finally, for the large right triangle VTW, which is the right angle?
Good. 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?
In tr. UVW small leg is UV, hypotenuse is VW. Which is vertex of small leg and hypotenuse?
Right. In tr. UWT, which is vertex of small leg & hypotenuse?
Right. In tr. VTW, which is vertex of small leg & hypotenuse?
This is what we have so far. |dw:1359701750932:dw|
The 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|
I need to fix one. The next pic will be correct.
|dw:1359702158900:dw|
Now you can read the triangles vertically. |dw:1359702298534:dw|
Fantastic! Thank you so much for all your help, sorry that I'm kinda dumb when it comes to geometry. Math is NOT my subject!
