Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what's the reasoning for line 2? any idea?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. I mean they are talking about one angle being equal to itself..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yep REFLEction so the REFLExive property is why A = A is true. it's trivial and seems kinda stupid (of course something is equal to itself, how could it not?) but at the same time it's good to have a rigorous set of rules

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1from this link we visited earlier http://www.regentsprep.org/regents/math/geometry/gp11/LsimilarProof.htm I'm going to focus on the SAS similarity theorem. See attached

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That theorem says if you have a pair of corresponding congruent angles, and you have that proportion mentioned in the attachment, then the triangles are similar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so that's the reason for line 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we only use the AA theorem IF we had 2 congruent corresponding angles. We had that last time, but we don't have that this time

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is the fourth line okay?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, but luckily you might know the theorem

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you mentioned the AA theorem. What exactly does the AA theorem say?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1specifically what does the entire theorem say? (other than just Angle Angle)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To show two triangles are similar, it is sufficient to show that two angles of one triangle are congruent (equal) to two angles of the other triangle. Theorem: If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle, the triangles are similar.

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So IF the angles are congruent THEN the triangles are similar flip that around to say... IF the triangles are similar THEN the angles are congruent

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the theorem you wrote out is the original AA similarity theorem the flipped version is the converse of that said theorem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright.. so would it be a converse AA theorem?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1converse of the AA similarity theorem, yep
