This one is really easy~~
In a right triangle, when the altitude is drawn to the hypotenuse, the three triangles formed are similar.
triangle ABC ~ triangle ADB ~ triangle BDC
That is not right
There are 6 correct ways of writing a similarity statement between two triangles. I wrote one that is correct. There are 5 more correct ones. Just because mine is not the one you expected, it does not mean it's incorrect.
True; but it has to be the one that I posted. Did you look at my shape?
It has to relate to those letters
You are missing the point. With any two given similar triangles, you can write the similarity statement 6 different ways, and they are all correct. The similarity statement I wrote is correct for the figure you posted in the problem. There are 5 more that are also correct. I wrote a similarity statement relating the three triangles as the problem above asked for. I didn't use x or y or the numbers because that is for a proportion of side lengths. That is not what the problem asks for.
There is one answer and that is not it; that's all I have to say.
IGH = HGF=IHF = means similar
That is not in the right order
what @mathstudent55 has is correct.
the question is not specific enough if you are expecting one particular answer.
I am expecting one.
do you want the values of x and y?
What he is saying is correct so far
No. What sides are congruent to one another?
What similarity statement can you write relating the three triangles in the diagram?
It really isn't that hard. It's either going to begin with GHF or HIF
Oh, I see. I used the triangles in the other figure. Why did you post a figure that is not part of this problem?
I am going to use that for a different question.....I did say to ignore it on top of the pic. Sorry if that threw you off
Ok, for the figure with triangle FHI, etc. this is the similarity statement: triangle FHI ~ triangle FGH ~ triangle HGI
Of course, that is one of 6 possible correct similarity statements.
And there is one correct answer for this.
No, there are 6 correct answers.
I get what you are saying but there is one that I am looking for.
GHF ~ GIH ~ HIF
Wow, I feel so honored that you approve. Thanks, and thanks for the medal.
