The angles have to be same for the figures to be similar.

  • Secret-Ninja
Yeah, and the angles aren't congruent, but I am having trouble actually proving it.

try using slope formula

slope of AB must be same to GH to be similar.

The angles HKJ and HKL are 45º. The angles BED and BEF are 60º

I want to know *how* to find the slope, though. I used to know but I've forgotten.

\(\LARGE \color{black}{ \displaystyle {\rm m}=\frac{\color{blue}{{\rm y}_1}-\color{red}{{\rm y}_2}}{\color{green}{{\rm x}_1}-\color{darkgoldenrod}{{\rm x}_2}} }\) where \(\LARGE \color{black}{ \displaystyle {\rm m} }\) is the slope \(\Large\color{black}{ \displaystyle (\color{green}{{\rm x}_1}~,~~\color{blue}{{\rm y}_1}) }\) and \(\Large\color{black}{ \displaystyle (\color{darkgoldenrod}{{\rm x}_2}~,~~\color{red}{{\rm y}_2}) }\) are your two points.

(that is the slope formula)

but you can tell that the angles are not equivalent though...
