Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay can yall help me? this is what i have so far.. idk if its right All circles are similar because you can scale one circle to be the same size as another (bigger or smaller) circle. They effectively have the same shape.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can go from one figure to the other with a translation and a dilation, does that make them similar? im not so sure...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what if i say this?? Theorem: Any two circles are similar. Proof: Given a circle of radius r and a second circle of radius R , perform a translation so that their centers coincide. A dilation from the common center of the circles with scale factor R takes the points of one circle and maps them onto the second. Thus we have mapped one circle onto the other via a translation and a dilation. The circles are simila

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i guess a better proof would be taking the ratio of their perimeter to their radius for each of them, you will get the same in both cases, actually you get: \[2\pi\] for any circle so they are similar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh okay that makes since so should i just put that?? proof would be taking the ratio of their perimeter to their radius for each of them, you will get the same in both cases, actually you get: 2π for any circle so they are similar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you look for the definition of similarity you find somethng like this: "Two figures that have the same shape are said to be similar.When two figures are similar, the ratios of the lengths of their corresponding sides are equal." Applied to a rectangle you would use the ratio between the sides, because that is what defines the rectangle shape, for a circle, the important quantity is its radius

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Given a circle of radius r and a second circle of radius R , perform a translation so that their centers coincide. A dilation from the common center of the circles with scale factor k=R/r takes the points of one circle and maps them onto the second.
