do you get it?
wait me a moment

Well, if you'll notice - every line there gets halved except for the middle one (HK).
IJ is 2 units, CD is 4 units GL is 2 units, AF is 4 units HK is 3 units, BE is 4 units
i still don't get it
No wait, HK is 2 units, AF is 3 units.
okay, AngusV got this
Damn it, I hate this notation - you get what I'm saying.
no i don't get what your saying
If 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.
k
so what should i write for my answer?
his explain have it all, get it to your @.@
+1
what?
i wil medal when i find the answer
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. ( IJ = 1/2 CD, same with AF and GL) Do you understand now?
yes so will that be my answer?
@Leong so will that be my answer?
You're a dense idiot, I hope you know that. We're not here to teach you how to write sentences.
Max, I only can give you explain, how do you answers is your own.
Unless you're a asian then that can be execptable
i am close to Asian i am Russian
You shouldn't be taking English courses then.
still =.= unless you are chinese, vietnamese, japanese, korean than it acceptable
i live in us but i struggle with geometry a lot
Your struggle is with writing an English sentence right now, you already have the answer.
Okay fine, I'll write it for you
sorry i am really bad in geometry every other subject is easy for me
and thx for helping me out
State the answers, that all you need to do =.= when they say complete answers means state it =.= not like you explain the whole universe in there =.=
"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. "
hahahaha, I like your answer @AngusV
lol that sounds to complicated
@max1409 do you even understand what he writing?
no 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
?
@Leong what do you mean by saying this Not 2 units because 4 lines above had prove.
you can say that because the figure give you that
is not move, it 1/2 to the other
line 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?
=.=
what does this mean =.=
Because IJ = 1/2 CD , same with AF and GL. Do you understand ?
yes i do
i am so confused
okay, 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?
i think so but i am still a little confused
so what should i add to this ? The image below shows two dilated figures with lines UV and WX drawn. If the larger figure was dilated using a scale factor of 4, what relationship do lines UV and WX have?
okay, I give up......
please don't
@dejmccray here you go
is she going to help me?
okay Max, this is your PROBLEM! we give you YOUR ANSWER, rewrite it into complete sentences is YOUR JOB, sr but I can't write it to you because you lazy to write it :) okay? okay.
what do you mean i re wrote what you wrote
?
erhm 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
line 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.
is this good?
@ Leong
I'm sorry, for the last time and by the power of God, do like Dejmccray say please :((
The 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.
is this good?
is 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
and i am not lazy i just don't get it
okay, then just read and look at the figure, you should find it out already
like I say calm down and read it slowly you will get it
IJ is 2 units, CD is 4 units GL is 2 units, AF is 4 units HK is 3 units, BE is 4 units i don't get this
shouldn'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
okay, 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
how 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
?
CD is not 3 =.= count!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if you can look at AF, it should be the same with CD cuz is PARALLEL!
ok so cd is 4 and ij is 3 be is 4 and hk is 3 af is 4 and gl is 3
hey max, one last time, THIS IS YOUR PROBLEM , WE GAVE YOU YOUR ANSWERS, PUT IT IN IS YOUR JOB! STOP PLAY DUMB OR I NEVER GOING TO HELP YOU AGAIN
thanks :)
i am not playing dumb i am actually trying
@Leong thanks for what?
anyone get it?
Do you think the angles are the same?
i don't think so
Why not?
i am not sure
Have you tried calculation the slopes or each segment in each shape?
he slope of DE is -2 and the slope of JK is -1
For example. FE and LK ?
That means they are not the same :) If the slopes are different, that means these two shapes are not congruent to each other.
fe is 2 and lk 1
the slopes
?
Yes. 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.
