    Yes, but I think you included the wrong image, that's the image from the last problem

    Ah, much better! Now, let's take a look at your answer choices again. First, let's look at Option B. Is A'B'C'D bigger than ABCD?

    Right! So we can get rid of B! Now, looking at choice A, do you know what the mathmatical definition of similar is?

    it means the same, right?

    Not exactly, here - In Geometry, two shapes are Similar when the only difference is size (and possibly the need to move, turn or flip one around).

    See these two circles? They're both the same shape, but not the same size, so they're similar!

    So, you already said that ABC and A'B'C' are the same size, so are they similar?

    Not quite, it's tricky though! They put that in to confuse you. Two shapes are similar when the only difference is size, and that isn't the case with your two polygons

    oh soo if they were the same shape but one was smaller they would be similar, Right?

    Right, but that's also a little bit confusing because your other two answers are not correct either... Let me try to call in for some extra help..

    Well if your guess was educated, then you need at least some evidence pointing towards that answer.

    I don't think it's any of those, I'm afraid you need to ask someone else.
