    Stephen wants to use the Side-Angle-Side Similarity Theorem to determine the triangles are similar. Which other distance does he need to know? The distance from the bus stop to the grocery store is 3 blocks The distance from the bus stop to his home is 6 blocks The distance from the grocery store to his friend's house is 8 blocks The distance from the park to his friend's house is 5 blocks

    The big triangle has it's two sides figured out, but the small triangle has only one side figured out.

    Ehh, not right because we are dealing with similar triangles. The big triangle, which is the whole thing, and the small triangle that is inside.
