Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1similar kites have their corresponding lengths in a fixed ratio. hope this helps :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do I tell if they are corresponding?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2To tell if the kites are similar, I would count how wide is the first kite (at its widest point) Can you do that ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im sorry I am not too well on questions like these

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2put your finger on point D, and count how many boxes to get to point R

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The bigger shape is 8 boxes wide

aizhalee

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the small box is 2 boxes wide

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes. Now do that for the smaller kite (although now up, because it is lying in a different direction)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from point a to b ? vertically ?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we want to know how long in the same direction. Yes a to b (because that matches what you did on the big kite)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from point A to B is 4 boxes :D

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes. It is like asking how tall are you, and then you lie down. we still want to measure from your feet to your head.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0:) so small shape is 4 boxes and big shape is 8 boxes wide

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so the big kite is 2 times bigger than the small kite now check the other direction. what do you get

aizhalee

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0From Y to E is 4 boxes and from D to R is 2 Boxes .

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2notice 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ahh I see ! From D to B is 1 box and from Y to K is 2 boxes c:

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes I agree but Phi how do I know which part is 2:1

aizhalee

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats the part the confuses me but I understand everything you just taught me now and I really appreciate it

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2all 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1don'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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2but if we are told dw:1437311884338:dw and kites are symmetric (the left side matches the right side) we know the kites are similar
