# How do you solve similar figures?

Space and Astronomy## How do you solve similar figures step by step?

Video quote: *Now in order to solve it remove to a cross multiply. So eight times X that's eight X and that's going to be equal to six times 12 which is 72.*

## How do you find similar figures?

Two figures are considered to be “similar figures” **if they have the same shape, congruent corresponding angles (meaning the angles in the same places of each shape are the same) and equal scale factors**.

## How do you solve problems with similar figures?

In similar figures, the ratios of the lengths of corresponding sides are equal. **Write an equation where the ratios of corresponding side lengths are set equal to each other.** **Then solve the equation to determine the missing side length**.

## How do you do similar figures and proportions?

Video quote: *In addition to the sides being proportional all corresponding angles have equal measures. So that means the measure of angle a is the same as the measure of angle.*

## How do you solve basic similarity theorem?

1. If a segment is parallel to one side of a triangle and intersects the other two sides, then the triangle formed is similar to the original and the segment that divides the two sides it intersects is proportional. 2. If three parallel lines intersect two transversals, then they divide the transversals proportionally.

## How do you solve similar figures of a rectangle?

Correct answer:

For two rectangles to be similar, **their sides have to be proportional (form equal ratios)**. The ratio of the two longer sides should equal the ratio of the two shorter sides. However, the left ratio in our proportion reduces.

## What is similarity math?

Two figures are said to be similar **if they are the same shape**. In more mathematical language, two figures are similar if their corresponding angles are congruent , and the ratios of the lengths of their corresponding sides are equal. This common ratio is called the scale factor .

## How do you teach similar figures?

Video quote: *And their corresponding sides need to be proportional the ratio of the lengths of corresponding sides and two similar figures is the similarity ratio. Let's look at some examples.*

## How do you use similarity in geometry?

**If the measures of the corresponding sides of two triangles are proportional then the triangles are similar**. Likewise if the measures of two sides in one triangle are proportional to the corresponding sides in another triangle and the including angles are congruent then the triangles are similar.

## What is the example of similarity?

The definition of a similarity is a quality or state of having something in common. **When you and your cousin look exactly alike**, this is an example of when the similarity between you two is striking. Closeness of appearance to something else.

## What ideas help experts see similarities?

Answer: Metaphors are created when two ideas or experiences are compared based on a common underlying structure. Finally, **analogies provide another way to identify similarities and make comparisons.**

## How do you find similarities and differences?

Also known as compare-contrast, this type of activity requires students to **identify important characteristics and then use these characteristics as the basis for identifying similarities and differences**. Venn diagrams, matrices, and T-charts are all powerful tools to help students compare.

## How do you write a similarity statement?

Video quote: *Symbol right there because those angles are going to be the same similar figures are the same side lengths but their angles are the same. Next up angle s would be congruent to angle Y.*

## What is a similarity theorem?

The fundamental theorem of similarity states that **a line segment splits two sides of a triangle into proportional segments if and only if the segment is parallel to the triangle’s third side**.

## What are the 3 ways to prove triangles are similar?

These three theorems, known as **Angle – Angle (AA), Side – Angle – Side (SAS), and Side – Side – Side (SSS)**, are foolproof methods for determining similarity in triangles.

## What is AAA theorem?

may be reformulated as the AAA (angle-angle-angle) similarity theorem: **two triangles have their corresponding angles equal if and only if their corresponding sides are proportional**.

## What does SSS stand for in math?

key idea

SSS (side-side-side) All three corresponding sides are congruent. | SAS (side-angle-side) Two sides and the angle between them are congruent. |

ASA (angle-side-angle) Two angles and the side between them are congruent. | AAS (angle-angle-side) Two angles and a non-included side are congruent. |

## What is SAS triangle?

first such theorem is the side-angle-side (SAS) theorem: **If two sides and the included angle of one triangle are equal to two sides and the included angle of another triangle, the triangles are congruent**.

## What is a hypotenuse leg in geometry?

Notice the legs are the two sides that are adjacent to your 90 degree angle. The hypotenuse is **the side that is opposite the 90 degree angle** so that’s going to be your longest side in your triangle.

## What is the longest side of a right triangle?

the hypotenuse

We define the side of the triangle opposite from the right angle to be the **hypotenuse**, h. It is the longest side of the three sides of the right triangle. The word “hypotenuse” comes from two Greek words meaning “to stretch”, since this is the longest side.

## How do you find the missing side of a triangle?

Video quote: *And we have two sides of the right triangle to find the missing side we could use something called a Pythagorean theorem which states that a squared plus B squared is equal to C squared.*

## What is in the scalene triangle?

A scalene triangle is a triangle that has **three unequal sides**, such as those illustrated above.

## What is a right equilateral?

Video quote: *A triangle with one right angle is called a right triangle.*

## What is a obtuse equilateral?

The angles in an equilateral triangle are all 60 degrees. 1803=60. since all three angles are equal divide the total degrees in an triangle by 180 by 3. An obtuse angle is **greater than 90 degrees**. 60< 90 so an equilateral triangle can not have an obtuse angle.
