Challenge! Ready? Are the polygons similar? If they are, write a similarity statement and give the scale factor. The figure is not drawn to scale.

If they are, tell me the reason why. Hint, what sides go together? What ratio?
anonymous
  • anonymous
That is the key to knowing ;)

do you see any angles that are the same?

are the corresponding sides in the same ratio?
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Polygons are similar if the following two conditions are met: 1. All angles of one polygon are congruent to the corresponding angles of the other polygon. 2. All pairs of corresponding sides have the same ratio of lengths.
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
If you can meet those conditions they are similar.

Indeed.

Look at the polygons. One has sides 6, 6, 2.8, 2.8 The other has sides 4.5, 4.5, 2.1, 2.1 Since in each polygon, each pair of opposite sides is congruent, both polygons are parallelograms.

Agreed
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
In a parallelogram, opposite angles are congruent. That means each polygon has opposite angles measuring 110 degrees and another pair of opposite angles measuring 70. That means the corresponding congruent angles are present.

You are correct about the decimals!

What sides go together?

Since you agree, and it seems you really know about this, I'll let you finish.

Hopefully no one says the answer before you

I'm hoping you tell me the answer. I'd like to hear it from you.

don't need a medal. you already know they are similar. DGE = VTU

Here: The first four are TUWV=??

What is congruent to those?

scale factor 3/4

What is congruent to those? Thats all that needs to be solved, too bad that professor is not here

That is correct. But since you are different person; actually. You also have to tell me the decimals

wb mathstudent, looks like you are going to be the winner
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
To finish, you must look at the ratios of the lengths of the sides: \(\dfrac{6}{4.5} = \dfrac{4}{3} \) \(\dfrac{2.8}{2.1} = \dfrac{4}{3} \) The ratios of the corresponding sides are equal, so the quadrilaterals are similar. Now we need to write the correct statement of similarity.
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
quadrilateral TUWV ~ quadrilateral DEFG

Correct
