Are these triangles similar? The sides are proportionate, but are the angles congruent? How could I justify my answer? At first I thought SAS, but the angle isn't between the sides on the bigger triangle.

    I would say no. The angles are congruent, but you can't prove two corresponding sides proportional. The 20 is opposite the angle in the bigger triangle, but 4 is adjacent to it in the smaller one.
