hint: look at the slope of BC and IJ

  • jim_thompson5910
are those two slopes the same?

no they arnt if they were C would be located at -1 , 2 right? and that would make D 3,2

what is the slope of BC?
anonymous

x+2, Y+1
jim_thompson5910

you go up 1, then over 2 slope of BC = 1/2 agreed?

1/1
jim_thompson5910

or just 1

  • jim_thompson5910
slope of BC = 1/2 slope of IJ = 1 the two slopes are different, which means the entire figures are NOT similar
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
the corresponding pieces must have the same slope
