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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, so if two polygons are congruent, are they similar?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no
anonymous
  • anonymous
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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
3 and 3??
anonymous
  • anonymous
try again
anonymous
  • anonymous
(don't count the first point on D or S)
anonymous
  • anonymous
2 and 2??
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes :) now count the distance from A to E and then P to T
anonymous
  • anonymous
2 AND 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
right :) now find the slope of the line segments BC and QR
anonymous
  • anonymous
2,2 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes :) now find the slope of the line segments AB and PQ
anonymous
  • anonymous
3,3

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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
both i think if not similar
anonymous
  • anonymous
right, both :) so now lets look at your answer choices and see what makes sense with that deduction.
anonymous
  • anonymous
does A make sense?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes but im not sure about the factor
anonymous
  • anonymous
the scale factor means that if you multiply every part of PQRST by 1, the result will be the same as ABCDE
anonymous
  • anonymous
so A is a possibility, so now lets look at B. Does it make sense?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it makes sense for the polygons to not be similar because they are congruent?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ooh no
anonymous
  • anonymous
right so its definitely not B. What about C?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no
anonymous
  • anonymous
right, now look at D. What do you think?
anonymous
  • anonymous
uhhh maybe ?\
anonymous
  • anonymous
think about it, do ABCDE and PQRST have the same set of corresponding side lengths?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oooh nope!
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it A?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
THANKyou soo much :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
no problem :) <3
