 Ratio: Is a comparison of two numbers by division.  EXAMPLES 1. The ratios 1 to 2 can be represented as 1:2 and ½ 2. Ratio of the rectangle may be written as: 3:7:3:7. 7 7 33 3. The ratios 4 to 8 can be represented as 4:8 and 4/8.

 Proportion: is an equation representing that two ratios are equal.  How to solve: to solve a proportion you must use the cross product property and solve for the missing letter.  EXAMPLES 1. a = c ad=bc b d

 Figures that are similar have the same shape but not necessarily the same size.  Two polygons are similar polygons if and only if their corresponding angles are congruent and their corresponding side lenghts are proportional.  Scale factor: describes how much the figure is enlarged or reduced. K: (a,b) →(ka,kb)

 Postulate 7-3-1 (AA similarity): If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle, then the triangles are similar.  Theorem 7-3-2 (SSS similarity): If the three sides of one triangle are proportional to the three corresponding sides of another triangle, then the triangles are similar.  Theorem 3-3-3 (SAS similarity): If two sides of one triangle are proportional to two sides of another triangle and their included angles are congruent, then the triangles are similar.

 To make an indirect measurement by using similar triangles you use the given measurements in order to find the missing side.  EXAMPLES

 To find the scale factor for the perimeter and areas of similar figures you need to see the corresponding sides which are proportional and the corresponding angles are equal. The scale factor describes the difference between the side it also describes how much a figure is enlarged or reduced.

 Trigonometric ratio: is a ratio of two sides of a right triangle.  SINE-the sine of an angle is the ratio of the lenght of the leg opposite the angle to the length of the hypotenuse.  COSINE- the cosine of an angle is the ratio of the length of the leg adjacent to the angle to the length of the hypotenuse.  TANGENT- the tangent of an angle is the ratio of the length of the leg opposite the angle to the length of the leg adjacent to the angle.

 The angle of elevation is the angle that forms between the horizontal line and the line of sight to a point above the line.

 The angle of depression is the angle that forms between the horizontal line and the line of sight to a point that is below that line.
