    Which of the following is a step towards proving the similarity of triangles ΔABC and ΔDBA? Segment BC is a hypotenuse. Angle B is congruent to itself. Segment BA is shorter than segment BC. Segment BC is intersected by segment AD.

    C doesn't make the triangles similar.

    It's just saying it's smaller.

    i has to be Segment BC is intersected by segment AD.

    D also doesn't make sense, because in what ways do they intersect, are the perpendicular or they're just intersecting? There's not much info to deal with.

    Actually, i dont understand this question because there's not enough info to deal with. For A, it says Segment BC is a hypotenuse but there's not enough info given for the smaller triangle.

    i think we could eliminate b because it does nit make sense to me

    you would need another 90 degree angle to show its similar
