Rectangle ABCD and rectangle EFGH are similar. Provide a proof that supports this.
what I have so far:
AB=CD BC=AD A,B,=C,D, B,C,=A,D, (definition of a rectangle)
angle A= 90 degrees angle B= 90 degrees angle C= 90 degrees angle D = 90 degrees
angle A,= 90 degrees angle B,= 90 degrees
angle C,= 90 degrees angle D,= 90 degrees (definition of a rectangle)
angle A= angle A, angle B= angle B,
angle C= angle C, angle D= angle D,
(i do not have the reason for this one)
any help please?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Mostly you have to prove that the sides are in proportion. Because they are rectangles, we already know then angles are same.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And btw, if angle A = Angle A, and etc. this is called reflexive property

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh okay, so my next step would be AB=A,B,?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0after reflexive property, I would need to prove that the sides are proportionate right? So that would be AB=A,B,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you're saying whatever "A,B," is EF then it is not reflexive property

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh no thats where the confusion is, the two rectangles are ABCD and A,B,C,D, im sorry

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Therefore if angle A = angle E, then it is substitution property i believe
