    SAS. Even though the middle angle isn't specified, it's hinted because the two triangles are connected together. They're vertical angles.

    not looking for congruence, similarity

    The sides are in equal proportions\[\frac{ 8 }{ 16 } = \frac{ 9 }{ 18 }\] You have to spin one of the triangles around to get the right sides

    the SAS things are to test congruence, same triangles, not similar

    as izuru pointed out, these two angles are congruent because they are vertical angles |dw:1438744084529:dw|
