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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you can meet those conditions they are similar.

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is correct. But since you are different person; actually. You also have to tell me the decimals

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