8.2: Similar Polygons Objective: To identify and apply similar polygons

Similar Polygons (~)  Same shape but not necessarily the same size Two Polygons are similar if: 1.Corresponding angles are congruent 2.Corresponding sides are proportional Similarity Ratio: ratio of the corresponding sides of similar figures

Determining Similarity and Writing Similarity Ratios corresponds to:  Corresponding Angles are congruent Similarity ratio:Similarity statement: A F B C E D 15 12 18 20 24 16
