The figure below shows segments AC and EF which intersect at point B. Segment AF is parallel to segment EC. Two line segments AC and FE intersect at B. Segments AF and EC are parallel to each other. Which of these facts is used to prove that triangle ABF is similar to triangle CBE? Angle AFB is congruent to angle CBE. Angle ABF is congruent to angle CBE. Line segment BC is congruent to line segment BE. Line segment AB is congruent to line segment FB.

    If it is similar if the corresponding angles are congruent.

    So are you saying that it is one of the first 2 answers?

    Ignore the length here because it does not tell you the length of each side. The picture obviously show two triangles with different length. Therefore, only angles matter to prove they are similar.

    All the other choice are off because the 2 side lengths state two sides of the same triangle. That cannot prove that 2 triangle are similar The other angle choices are not corresponding. It should not equal.

    This is an interesting problem. You should explain it a bit more.
