    Well, "SAS" is pretty much a theorem that englobes the similarity of two triangles. In short words: "If a pair of triangles have a two pairs of similar angles and the angles between them are also congruent, then, the two triangles are similar."

    And in the excercise you are given that two sides are similar and also the angles inbetween are congruent, therefore ABC and XYZ are similar.
