HELP??!!! WILL MEDAL AND FAN!!!!!! :)
Which sentence correctly explains whether polygons ABCDE and PQRST are similar?
A.They are similar because ABCDE can be mapped onto PQRST by a similarity transformation. The scale factor is 1.
B.They are not similar because ABCDE is congruent to PQRST.
C.They are not similar because their corresponding angle measurements are congruent.
D.They are similar because they have the same set of corresponding side lengths.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, so do you know what it means for two polygons to be similar?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, so if two polygons are congruent, are they similar?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not always, but sometimes 2 similar polygons are congruent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because DE and ST are line segments matched up, I want you to count the distance the coordinate plane from D to E and then from S to T. What do you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(don't count the first point on D or S)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes :) now count the distance from A to E and then P to T

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually its 3, but that's okay. so basically every part of polygon ABCDE has a corresponding, congruent part with polygon PQRST. So does this show that the polygons are similar, congruent, or both?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0both i think if not similar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, both :) so now lets look at your answer choices and see what makes sense with that deduction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes but im not sure about the factor

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the scale factor means that if you multiply every part of PQRST by 1, the result will be the same as ABCDE

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so A is a possibility, so now lets look at B. Does it make sense?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it makes sense for the polygons to not be similar because they are congruent?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right so its definitely not B. What about C?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, now look at D. What do you think?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0think about it, do ABCDE and PQRST have the same set of corresponding side lengths?
