Not looking for direct answers, just a little help. I understand that QU is parallel to RT. But I am being asked what further information will prove that RST is similar to QSU by the SSS similarity theorem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, so if we know this \[\Large \frac{RS}{QS} = \frac{RT}{QU} = \frac{TS}{US}\] then we can use the SSS similarity theorem to prove the triangles similar
