1 7.4 A Postulate for Similar Triangles

2 We can prove that 2 triangles are similar by showing that all 3 corresponding angles are congruent, and all 3 sides are in proportion to one another (same as showing any 2 polygons similar) But there are simpler methods to prove 2 triangles similar.

3 AA Similarity Postulate If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle, then the triangles are similar.

6 Are these triangles similar, if so, then why? Can you find x? And AE and ED? What is the scale factor?
