**G.7 Proving Triangles Similar**

(AA~, SSS~, SAS~)

2
Similar Triangles Two triangles are similar if they are the same shape. That means the vertices can be paired up so the angles are congruent. Size does not matter.

3
**AA Similarity (Angle-Angle or AA~)**

If 2 angles of one triangle are congruent to 2 angles of another triangle, then the triangles are similar. Given: and Conclusion: by AA~

4
**SSS Similarity (Side-Side-Side or SSS~)**

If the lengths of the corresponding sides of 2 triangles are proportional, then the triangles are similar. Given: Conclusion: by SSS~

5
**Example: SSS Similarity (Side-Side-Side)**

5 11 22 8 16 10 Given: Conclusion: By SSS ~

6
**SAS Similarity (Side-Angle-Side or SAS~)**

If the lengths of 2 sides of a triangle are proportional to the lengths of 2 corresponding sides of another triangle and the included angles are congruent, then the triangles are similar. Given: Conclusion: by SAS~

**Similarity is reflexive, symmetric, and transitive.**

Proving Triangles Similar Similarity is reflexive, symmetric, and transitive. Steps for proving triangles similar: 1. Mark the Given. 2. Mark … Reflexive (shared) Angles or Vertical Angles 3. Choose a Method. (AA~, SSS~, SAS~) Think about what you need for the chosen method and be sure to include those parts in the proof.
