Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If there are two pairs of corresponding angles and a pair of corresponding opposite sides that are equal in measure, then the triangles are congruent. http://www.mathopenref.com/congruentaas.html

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait do angle need to add up to 180 or 160?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right So we have the 2 corresponding base angles in each triangle equal. that is m< A = m<A' and m<B = m< B'. This proves that the 2 triangles are similar.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what should i write?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I guess that is the Angle Angle Similarity Postulate mentioned in the question. I never heard of that in th UK.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well those 2 angles being equal satisfies the postulate. Therefore the triangles are similar.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Corresponding angles are congruent. When the corresponding angles of two or more triangles are congruent, the triangles are similar. This is known as the AngleAngle Similarity Postulate. Similar triangles are marked with a ~ symbol, so ΔABC ~ ΔA'B'C'. The third angles are congruent, too. Why do you think mathematicians don't call it the AngleAngleAngle Similarity Postulate? If two angles of a triangle are equal to two angles of another triangle, the third angles must be congruent because all triangles have a total angle measure of 180°. So putting another "Angle" in the name is unnecessary.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Fisrt show how you worked out that angle B' = 33. Then say angle A is congruent to angle A' because they are both 50 degrees similar thing for angle B and B' Thus triangles ABC and A'B'C' are similar because they satisfy the postulate (write that in full). And that's it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there's no need to find the value of angle C , just B'

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no need to mention C and C' either And write the postulate in full.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If 2 angles are congruent then the 3rd must be congruent also

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in the fist line angle C = 97 not 9

welshfella

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yea OK . Leave the statements about angles C and C' in if you want to though they are not necessary. If you leave them in then leave the last sentence out.
