Prove Triangles Similar by SSS and SAS Section 6.5

The Concept Yesterday we looked at looked at how we can prove two triangles similar by way of looking at their angles Yesterday we looked at looked at how we can prove two triangles similar by way of looking at their angles Today we’re going to see how we can utilize some of our congruence methodologies to also prove similarity Today we’re going to see how we can utilize some of our congruence methodologies to also prove similarity

Theorems When we studied triangle congruence we used this postulate Postulate 19: Side-Side-Side Congruence Postulate If three sides of one triangle are congruent to three sides of a second triangle, then the two triangles are congruent… This postulate now becomes Theorem 6.2: Side-Side-Side Similarity Theorem If the corresponding side lengths of two triangles are proportional, then the triangles are similar.

Theorem in action Let’s look at an example to illustrate this theorem Are these two triangles similar? 12 8 10 1815 12 What about these two? 12 8 10 14 12

Theorems When we studied triangle congruence we also saw this postulate Postulate 20: Side-Angle-Side Congruence Postulate If two sides and the included angle of one triangle are congruent to two sides and the included angle of a second triangle, then the two triangles are congruent This postulate now becomes Theorem 6.3: Side-Angle-Side Similarity Theorem If an angle of one triangle is congruent to an angle of a second triangle and the lengths of the sides including these angles are proportional, then the triangles are similar
