Presentation on theme: "Honors Geometry Section 8.2 B Similar Polygons. Two polygons are congruent iff they have exactly the same size and shape. Two polygons are similar iff."— Presentation transcript:
The scale factor of two similar polygons is the ratio of any pair of corresponding sides. For the figures above, the scale factor is equal to Note: You must write the scale factor in the same order as the similarity statement.
Example: and AB = 24, BC = 32 and YZ = 40. What segment can you find the length of and what is its length? What is the scale factor for this similarity?
