Similar Figures Similar figures are figures that have the same shape, but not necessarily the same size.

Similar Polygons Two polygons are similar if: Corresponding angles are congruent. Corresponding sides are proportional.

Similarity Ratio The ratio of the lengths of corresponding sides is the similarity ratio.
