5-8 Using Similar Figures
Course 2 5-8 Using Similar Figures Indirect measurement is a method of using proportions to find an unknown length or distance in similar figures.

Additional Example 1: Determining Whether Two Triangles Are Similar
Course 2 5-7 Similar Figures and Proportions Additional Example 1: Determining Whether Two Triangles Are Similar Identify the corresponding sides in the pair of triangles. Then use ratios to determine whether the triangles are similar. E AB corresponds to DE. 16 in 10 in A C 28 in BC corresponds to EF. 4 in D 7 in 40 in F AC corresponds to DF. B AB DE = ? BC EF = ? AC DF Write ratios using the corresponding sides. 4 16 = ? 7 28 = ? 10 40 Substitute the length of the sides. 1 4 = ? 1 4 = ? 1 4 Simplify each ratio. Since the ratios of the corresponding sides are equivalent, the triangles are similar.

Then use ratios to determine whether the triangles are similar. E AB corresponds to DE. 15 in X in A C 30 in BC corresponds to EF. 3 in D 6 in 40 in F AC corresponds to DF. B AB DE = BC EF = AC DF

Additional Example 1: Finding Unknown Lengths in Similar Figures
Course 2 5-8 Using Similar Figures Additional Example 1: Finding Unknown Lengths in Similar Figures Find the unknown length in similar figures. AC QS = AB QR Write a proportion using corresponding sides. 12 48 14 w = Substitute lengths of the sides. 12 · w = 48 · 14 Find the cross product. 12w = 672 Multiply. 12w 12 672 12 = Divide each side by 12 to isolate the variable. w = 56 QR is 56 centimeters.
