Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0two polygons are similar when they have all the angles same...so did you check all the angles?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can draw a parallel line to the horizontal line and if you will check their sin of the angle they will be different

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2In triangles, AA (all angles equal) will imply similarity of triangles. The same rule (all angles equal) does not guarantee similarity of polygons of 4 or more sides, see counter example below: dw:1433249090711:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2To guarantee similarity of polygons, we must have 1. all angles equal, and 2. at least n1 \(corresponding\) sides proportional, n is the number of sides of the polygon.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1433249544160:dw is sufficient to prove that the two polygons are similar, because the two squares are similar, and the two triangles are also similar. @joeylup

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The addition of the two sides \(contradicts\) the similarity. You will find that it is impossible to draw the two polygon with the given dimension including the sides 10 and 11 without violating some of the other information.dw:1433249815704:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I.e. if all the dimensions are as prescribed, the two acute angles cannot be equal. This is the flaw of the question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The expected answer of the question is \(probably\) "not similar", but you should talk to your teacher about it.
