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

No wait, HK is 2 units, AF is 3 units.

max1409
  • max1409
no i don't get what your saying
anonymous
  • anonymous
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.

@Leong ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
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?
max1409

yes so will that be my answer?

"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. "

lol that sounds to complicated
anonymous
  • anonymous
@max1409 do you even understand what he writing?
max1409
  • max1409
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
max1409

@Leong

max1409

@Leong what do you mean by saying this Not 2 units because 4 lines above had prove.
anonymous
  • anonymous
you can say that because the figure give you that
anonymous
  • anonymous
is not move, it 1/2 to the other
max1409
  • max1409
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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
=.=
max1409
  • max1409
what does this mean =.=
anonymous
  • anonymous
Because IJ = 1/2 CD , same with AF and GL. Do you understand ?
max1409
  • max1409
yes i do
max1409
  • max1409
i am so confused
anonymous
  • anonymous
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?
max1409
  • max1409
i think so but i am still a little confused
max1409
  • max1409
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 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
max1409
  • max1409
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?

I'm sorry, for the last time and by the power of God, do like Dejmccray say please :((
max1409
  • max1409
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.
max1409
  • max1409
is this good?
max1409
  • max1409
@Leong ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
max1409
  • max1409
and i am not lazy i just don't get it
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, then just read and look at the figure, you should find it out already
dejmccray

like I say calm down and read it slowly you will get it
max1409
  • max1409
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
max1409
  • max1409
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
max1409
  • max1409
@Leong ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
max1409
  • max1409
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
max1409
  • max1409
@Leong ?
max1409
  • max1409
?
anonymous
  • anonymous
CD is not 3 =.= count!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if you can look at AF, it should be the same with CD cuz is PARALLEL!
max1409
  • max1409
ok so cd is 4 and ij is 3 be is 4 and hk is 3 af is 4 and gl is 3

Do you think the angles are the same?
max1409
  • max1409
i don't think so
Zale101
  • Zale101
Why not?
max1409
  • max1409
i am not sure
Zale101
  • Zale101
Have you tried calculation the slopes or each segment in each shape?
max1409
  • max1409
he slope of DE is -2 and the slope of JK is -1
Zale101
  • Zale101
For example. FE and LK ?
Zale101
  • Zale101
That means they are not the same :) If the slopes are different, that means these two shapes are not congruent to each other.
max1409
  • max1409
fe is 2 and lk 1
max1409
  • max1409
the slopes
max1409
  • max1409
?
Zale101
  • Zale101
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.
