Similarity Pathway

Similarity Pathway

What makes two triangles similar? It’s all about the Corresponding Parts. Two triangles may be different sizes, but that’s not what defines similarity. Scale Factors describe the length of two corresponding sides as a ratio. If this ratio is the same for all pairs of corresponding sides, we can say two triangles are similar. Upon completion of this pathway, you will be able to use several similarity postulates, or truth statements, such as SAS Triangle Similarity to check if two triangles are similar.
