similar kites have their corresponding lengths in a fixed ratio. hope this helps :)

- Aizhalee

how do I tell if they are corresponding?

- Aizhalee

Yay hello Phi :D

- phi

To tell if the kites are similar, I would count how wide is the first kite (at its widest point)
Can you do that ?

- Aizhalee

Do I have to add up all the points ?

- Aizhalee

Im sorry I am not too well on questions like these

- phi

count how many "boxes"

- phi

put your finger on point D, and count how many boxes to get to point R

- Aizhalee

The bigger shape is 8 boxes wide

- Aizhalee

the small box is 2 boxes wide

- phi

yes. Now do that for the smaller kite (although now up, because it is lying in a different direction)

- Aizhalee

from point a to b ? vertically ?

- phi

we want to know how long in the same direction. Yes a to b
(because that matches what you did on the big kite)

- Aizhalee

from point A to B is 4 boxes :D

- phi

Yes. It is like asking how tall are you, and then you lie down. we still want to measure from your feet to your head.

- Aizhalee

:) so small shape is 4 boxes and big shape is 8 boxes wide

- phi

so the big kite is 2 times bigger than the small kite
now check the other direction. what do you get

- Aizhalee

From Y to E is 4 boxes and from D to R is 2 Boxes .

- phi

notice the big kite is 2 times bigger than the smaller kite.
(if we got a different number, then they would *not* be similar)
one last thing to check.
how many boxes from the cross part up to the tip?
in other words, how far straight up from D to B ? 1 step
in the big kite it is 2 steps.
still 2 times bigger.

- Aizhalee

Ahh I see ! From D to B is 1 box and from Y to K is 2 boxes c:

- phi

|dw:1437311558792:dw|

- phi

if all 3 measures show the big kite is 2 times bigger than the other, then the kites have the same shape, and the only difference is the bigger one is 2 times bigger.

- Aizhalee

Yes I agree but Phi how do I know which part is 2:1

- Aizhalee

thats the part the confuses me but I understand everything you just taught me now and I really appreciate it

- phi

all the sides will be 2:1
to answer the question, there are two choices that say *similar*
the first choice
says: if the "top" parts of the kite are similar then the whole kite is similar
|dw:1437311801219:dw|
but that does not make them similar.

- imqwerty

don't get confused between corresponding sides because |dw:1437397758769:dw|
u can compare the smaller sides of kite1 with smaller side of kite 2 (u might be thinking that both the kites hav 2 smaller sides so which sides to compare with which one but we know that kites have the 2 smaller sides equal nd also the 2 bigger sides r equal in a kite so u can compare any of the smaller/bigger side of kite1 with any of smaller/bigger side of kite2).

- phi

but if we are told
|dw:1437311884338:dw|
and kites are symmetric (the left side matches the right side)
we know the kites are similar

- Aizhalee

Oh I see now Thank you for explaining Phi and Imq. I will be adding this into my notes :)

- imqwerty

welcome :)
