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. Conclusion: andGiven: 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) 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~

7
Example: SAS Similarity (Side-Angle-Side) Given : Conclusion : By SAS ~

Similarity is reflexive, symmetric, and transitive. 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. Steps for proving triangles similar: Proving Triangles Similar
