Geometric Similarities Time Frame 1) Similarity Correspondence 2) Proportionality (SSS) (Side-side-side) 3) Proportionality (SAS) (side-angle-side) 4) Similarity Postulates 5) Deductions 6) Dimensions 7) Three Dimensions

Similarity Correspondence Similarity – Two shapes are said to be similar if they have the same angles and their sides are proportional Note – we see shape by angles & we see size with side length

Consider A C D B Z Y W X Similar & Why? 8 32 2416 5 20 15 10 100 80 85 95 80 100 95 85

Proportionality (SSS) We say the two shapes are similar because their angles are the same and their sides are proportional We can note corresponding points A X D W B Y C Z

Angles We note corresponding angles < ADC = < XWZ (95°) < DCB = < WZY (85°) < CBA = < ZYX (80°) < BAD = < YXW (100°)

Notes Hence we would say ADCB XWZY Hence we note corresponding angles < ADC = < XWZ < DCB = < WZY < CBA = < ZYX < BAD = < YXW

Proportionality Next is proportionality which we will state as a fraction AD=8 DC=16 CB=32 BA=24 XW 5 WZ 10 ZY 20 YX 15 What is the proportion (not in a fraction)? 8/5 which is reduced to 1.6

Question #1 Identify the similar figures and state the similarity relationship, side proportion and angle equality A C Z T C B BIG SMALL BIG MED SMALL

Notes for Solution By observing you need to establish the relationship. Look at angles or side lengths Important: An important trick when comparing angles and sides is that the biggest angles is always across the biggest side, the smallest from the smallest and medium from the medium.

Solution #1 Triangle ABC ˜ TCZ AB = BC = CA TC CZ ZT < ABC = < TCZ < BCA = { "@context": "http://schema.org", "@type": "ImageObject", "contentUrl": "http://images.slideplayer.com/1/258240/slides/slide_11.jpg", "name": "Solution #1 Triangle ABC ˜ TCZ AB = BC = CA TC CZ ZT < ABC = < TCZ < BCA =

Important Note Make sure the middle angle letters are all different because the middle letter is the actual angle that you are looking at. AC = CA < ACB = < BCA Both the above are the same

Question #2 K R L T X Q MED SMALL MED With isosceles (or equilateral triangles) you may get two (or three) different answers). However, you are only required to provide one.

Solution a for #2 The question is to identify similar figures and state the similarity relationship, side proportion and graph equality. QK = KT = QT RX XL RL < QKT = < RXL < KTQ = < XLR < TQK = < LRX QKT ˜ RXL

Solution b for #2 You can also have another solution Triangle QKT is still congruent to RLX QK = KT = QT RL LX RX < QKT = < RLX < KTQ = < LXR < TQK = XRL

More Notes There are other ways of establishing similarity in triangles At this point we will abandon reality for simple effective but not accurate drawings of triangles… (it is not to scale). Please complete #1 a – o For Question #3, again, state similarity relationship, side proportion and angle equality.

Question #3 T 27 21 30 45 35 18 Q R C B A If the three sides are proportional to the corresponding three sides in the other triangle, the two will be similar.

Solution Notes You need to check… SMALL with SMALL MEDIUM with MEDIUM BIG with BIG

Solution #3 ABC ˜ QRT Med Small Big Small Med Big 18 = 21 = 27 30 35 45 0.6 = 0.6 = 0.6; YES SIMILAR

Proportionality SAS We can also show similarity in triangles if we can find two set corresponding sides proportional and the contained angles equal; we can determine similarity 14°18 A B C Z Y X 42 14° 15 35

Question #4 Show if the triangle is similar Solution… since { "@context": "http://schema.org", "@type": "ImageObject", "contentUrl": "http://images.slideplayer.com/1/258240/slides/slide_21.jpg", "name": "Question #4 Show if the triangle is similar Solution… since

Triangle Similarity Postulates There are three main postulates we use to state similarity SSS all corresponding sides proportional SAS two sets of corresponding sides and the contained angle are equal AA two angles (the third is automatically equal since in a triangle, the interior angle must add up to 180°) are equal

Example #1 Why are the following statements true? QPT ˜ ZXA 42° 84° 54° AA PT Z A X Q

Example #2 Why are the following statements true? KTR ˜ PMN 51° Solution: since 24/16 = 27/18 R KT P N M 27 1618 SAS 24

Example #3 16 12 CB A 9 24 6 32P T K Since 16 = 24 = 32 6 9 12 8/3 = 8/3 = 8/3 S S S

Parallel Lines Facts: If two tranversals intersect three parallel lines, the segments between the lines are proportional a bd Therefore, a = c b d c

Notes Also note that… A C B BC = 1 AC 2

Parallel and the Triangle If a parallel line to a side of a triangle intersects the other two sides it creates two similar triangles A E B C D Therefore, ABE ˜ ACD

Question #1 3 4x 9 Find x 3 = 9 4 x 3x = 36 x = 12

Question #2 C x B 40 150 50 E A D We note BE // CD Thus, ABE ˜ ACD AB = BE = AE AC CD AD x = 50 = AE x+40 150 AD

Question #2 Soln Cont We only need x = 50 x+40 150 150x = 50(x+40) 150x = 50x + 2000 100x = 2000 x = 20

Dimensions In general in 1D if a:b then in 2D a 2 : b 2 Ex. In 1D if 5:3 then in 2D? In 2D then 25:9 You can go backwards by using square root Ex. In 2D if 36:49 then in 1D 6:7
