# Use a Similarity Statement If ABC RST list

Use a Similarity Statement If ΔABC ~ ΔRST, list all pairs of congruent angles and write a proportion that relates the corresponding sides.

Use a Similarity Statement Use the similarity statement. ΔABC ~ ΔRST Answer: Congruent Angles: A R, B S, C T

If ΔGHK ~ ΔPQR, determine which of the following similarity statements is not true. A. HGK QPR B. C. K R D. GHK QPR

Identify Similar Polygons A. MENUS Tan is designing a new menu for the restaurant where he works. Determine whether the size for the new menu is similar to the original menu. If so, write the similarity statement and scale factor. Explain your reasoning. Original Menu: New Menu:

Identify Similar Polygons Step 1 Compare corresponding angles. Since all angles of a rectangle are right angles and right angles are congruent, corresponding angles are congruent. Step 2 Compare corresponding sides. Answer: Since corresponding sides are not proportional, ABCD is not similar to FGHK. So, the menus are not similar.

Identify Similar Polygons B. MENUS Tan is designing a new menu for the restaurant where he works. Determine whether the size for the new menu is similar to the original menu. If so, write the similarity statement and scale factor. Explain your reasoning. Original Menu: New Menu:

Identify Similar Polygons Step 1 Compare corresponding angles. Since all angles of a rectangle are right angles and right angles are congruent, corresponding angles are congruent. Step 2 Compare corresponding sides.

Identify Similar Polygons Answer: Since corresponding sides are proportional, ABCD ~ RSTU. So, the menus are similar 4. with a scale factor of __ 5

Use Similar Figures to Find Missing Measures A. The two polygons are similar. Find x. Use the congruent angles to write the corresponding vertices in order. polygon ABCDE ~ polygon RSTUV

Use Similar Figures to Find Missing Measures Write a proportion to find x. Similarity proportion Cross Products Property Multiply. Divide each side by 4. Simplify. 9 Answer: x = __ 2

Use Similar Figures to Find Missing Measures B. The two polygons are similar. Find y. Use the congruent angles to write the corresponding vertices in order. polygon ABCDE ~ polygon RSTUV

Use Similar Figures to Find Missing Measures Similarity proportion AB = 6, RS = 4, DE = 8, UV = y + 1 Cross Products Property Multiply. Subtract 6 from each side. Divide each side by 6 and simplify. __ Answer: y = 13 3

Use a Scale Factor to Find Perimeter If ABCDE ~ RSTUV, find the scale factor of ABCDE to RSTUV and the perimeter of each polygon.

Use a Scale Factor to Find Perimeter 4. ___ The scale factor ABCDE to RSTUV is AE or __ 7 VU Write a proportion to find the length of DC. Write a proportion. 4(10. 5) = 7 ● DC 6 = DC Cross Products Property Divide each side by 7. Since DC AB and AE DE, the perimeter of ABCDE is 6 + 6 + 4 or 26.

Use a Scale Factor to Find Perimeter Use the perimeter of ABCDE and scale factor to write a proportion. Let x represent the perimeter of RSTUV. Theorem 7. 1 Substitution 4 x = (26)(7) x = 45. 5 Cross Products Property Solve.

Use a Scale Factor to Find Perimeter Answer: The perimeter of ABCDE is 26 and the perimeter of RSTUV is 45. 5.
