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

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

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

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

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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).

    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
