Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The AA similarity postulate states that if two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle, then the triangles are similar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if you can show that two angles of the first triangle are congruent to two angles of the second triangle, then you can state that the triangles are similar by the AA similarity postulate.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can you show that two angles are congruent?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In other words, they have equal measures.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now, can you show that two angles are congruent?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well i know ab and a'b' have the same measurements

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How many degrees is angle A?

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How many degrees is angle A' ?

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is 32 degrees equal to 32 degrees?

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So do angles A and A' have the same measure?

Mertsj
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So are angles A and A' congruent since they have the same measure?

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now we have shown 1 angle of the first triangle is congruent to 1 angle of the second triangle. How many angles must we show are congruent to have AA similarity?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02 and both b and b' have the same measurements

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That would be B and B'. You are not allowed to change the name of the angle.

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now, having shown that angles A and A' are congruent and B and B' are congruent, you can state that the two triangles are similar because of the AA similarity postulate.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And I hope you have discovered that even the simplest geometry problem is impossible if you don't know the meaning of the words.
