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?

    Mostly you have to prove that the sides are in proportion. Because they are rectangles, we already know then angles are same.

    And btw, if angle A = Angle A, and etc. this is called reflexive property

    Oh okay, so my next step would be AB=A,B,?

    after reflexive property, I would need to prove that the sides are proportionate right? So that would be AB=A,B,

    if you're saying whatever "A,B," is EF then it is not reflexive property

    Oh no thats where the confusion is, the two rectangles are ABCD and A,B,C,D, im sorry

    Therefore if angle A = angle E, then it is substitution property i believe
