5-5 Similar Figures Matching sides are called corresponding sides A B C D E F 1.) Which side is corresponding to ? 2.) Which side is corresponding to ? 3.) Which side is corresponding to ?

Sometimes the figures are turned around. Find the corresponding sides of the figures. F U N T R I 3.) Which side is corresponding to ? 2.) Which side is corresponding to ? 1.) Which side is corresponding to ?

Similar Figures: 1.) Corresponding sides must form equivalent ratios 2.) Corresponding angles must be congruent (equal) Are these shapes similar? Why or why not? 10 m 5 m 6 m 3 m

24 in 21 in 36 in F E x 7 in 12 in D First identify the corresponding sides: corresponds to _____________ S R Q

a.) Write a proportion using the corresponding sides. b.) Use cross products to solve the proportion. 24 in 21 in 36 in F E x 7 in 12 in D R Q S 1.) Find the length of SR.
