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.

    I apologize, but it's still early in the morning for me and I don't want to mislead you in any form or way because of my silly mistakes.

    okay, so do you know what it means for two polygons to be similar?

    okay, so if two polygons are congruent, are they similar?

    not always, but sometimes 2 similar polygons are congruent

    because 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?

    yes :) now count the distance from A to E and then P to T

    right :) now find the slope of the line segments BC and QR

    actually 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?

    both i think if not similar

    right, both :) so now lets look at your answer choices and see what makes sense with that deduction.

    does A make sense?

    yes but im not sure about the factor

    the scale factor means that if you multiply every part of PQRST by 1, the result will be the same as ABCDE

    so A is a possibility, so now lets look at B. Does it make sense?

    so it makes sense for the polygons to not be similar because they are congruent?

    think about it, do ABCDE and PQRST have the same set of corresponding side lengths?
