Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Angles S and V are congruent. dw:1444330247536:dw We are given that the triangle are similar, meaning that their sides are proportional. Given this, no matter what proportionality factor, the angles are always the same.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To find congruence, we need to see if the sides are proportional. Let's look at the top side: \[\frac{25}{15}=\frac{5}{3}\] Left side:\[\frac{5}{3}=\frac{5}{3}\] Therefore, given that the respective sides of the rectangles are congruent with the same constant of proportionality, then the rectangles are similar.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is paramount to know the difference between congruence and equality. These rectangles are not equal (=). They have different dimensions and different areas. However, given that they are proportional, then they are considered congruent or similar (≅)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Technically, both are true. But all rectangles have 4 right angles. But if we look at any two rectangles with 4 right angles, then they might not be similar. In this case, we proved that the rectangles are similar through the proportionality of their sides lengths. I would pick C.
