7-4A Similar Figures and Proportions Learning Objective: To determine whether two given figures are similar, and to use similarity to find missing lengths or angle measures. Warm-up (IN) Solve the proportions.

Notes Learning Objective: To determine whether two given figures are similar, and to use similarity to find missing lengths or angle measures.. Similar figures - ~ Corresponding angles are congruent Corresponding sides are in proportion S T U 12 X V W 24 16 72º 48º 72º 60º 48º 8 10 20

Learning Objective: To determine whether two given figures are similar, and to use similarity to find missing lengths or angle measures.. Ex 1 – The triangles are similar. Find the missing variable. a.
