Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, if you'll notice  every line there gets halved except for the middle one (HK).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you want two things to be similar their proportions need to be exact. Every single line is halved in the second figure except for the HK line which should've been 1.5 units, not 2  because BE is 3 units long.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can say that line CD and IJ are similar because it move from 2 to 4 units do same with AF and GL, but look at line BE and HK. BE is 3 units mean that HK have to be 1/2 of BE, which is 1.5 to be similar. Not 2 units because 4 lines above had prove. ( IJ = 1/2 CD, same with AF and GL) Do you understand now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"In my opinion, it is my utmost proficiency as a scholar of Euclidian geometry to conclude that I've witnessed a transformation in the lines of the first figure equal to one half of their original size and further projected upon the second image on all lines presented in the first figure except for one  written as BE  which did not preserve the aforementioned proportion. Due to the measurable fact that HK line is more than half of the BE line we may therefore conclude that this disproportional projection does not reflect a similar transformation and I enclose my statement that the figures are not similar. "

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no i don't i think he just wrote this can say that line CD and IJ are similar because it move from 2 to 4 units do same with AF and GL, but look at line BE and HK. BE is 3 units mean that HK have to be 1/2 of BE, which is 1.5 to be similar. Not 2 units because 4 lines above had prove. just more complicated

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Leong what do you mean by saying this Not 2 units because 4 lines above had prove.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is not move, it 1/2 to the other

max1409

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0line CD and IJ are similar because it move from 2 to 4 units and line AF and GL are similar because it move from 2 to 4 units. But line BE and HK are different BE is 3 units which means that HK has to be 1/2 of BE, which is 1.5 to be similar. does this sound good i reworded it a little?

max1409

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what does this mean =.=

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because IJ = 1/2 CD , same with AF and GL. Do you understand ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, now you do the same with BE and HK, because BE is 3 units and HK is 2 units so the figure is not similar since IJ = 1/2 CD and GF = 1/2 AF so HK SHOULD ALSO = 1/2 BE. Not 2. Do you understand?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1erhm I think @Leong mean reread and write what they explain and try to figure it out on your own I know your not dumb so read it slowly and carefully no one is gonna tell you the answer because you need to know this yourself sorry

max1409

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0line CD and IJ are similar because it move from 2 to 4 units and line AF and GL are similar because it move from 2 to 4 units. But line BE and HK are different BE is 3 units which means that HK has to be 1/2 of BE, which is 1.5 to be similar has to be 1/2 not 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The slope of DE is 2 and the slope of JK is 1 so that means they are not similar right because the angles are not congruent.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is not about the angle max, if you want angle, it going to be more hard to understand. Just read all the comments and think max, like i said, i'm not going to say yes or no to your answers

max1409

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0shouldn't it be like IJ is 2 units, CD is 3 units GL is 2 units, AF is 3 units HK is 2 units, BE is 3 units

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, IJ is 2 units, CD is 4 units GL is 2 units, AF is 4 units HK is 3 units, BE is 4 units ( this is right) IJ is 2 units, CD is 3 units GL is 2 units, AF is 3 units HK is 2 units, BE is 3 units ( this is wrong) why?? look at the figure and count, and see it yourself

max1409

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how can this be true if IJ is 2 units, CD is 4 units and your saying IJ is 2 units, CD is 3 units are both correct

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0CD is not 3 =.= count!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if you can look at AF, it should be the same with CD cuz is PARALLEL!

max1409

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so cd is 4 and ij is 3 be is 4 and hk is 3 af is 4 and gl is 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Have you tried calculation the slopes or each segment in each shape?

max1409

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0he slope of DE is 2 and the slope of JK is 1

Zale101

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For example. FE and LK ?

Zale101

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That means they are not the same :) If the slopes are different, that means these two shapes are not congruent to each other.

Zale101

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes. Since you calculated DE and JK and figured the slopes were different, then the slopes will be different when you calculate the rest of the segments.
