  • Remember: congruent polygons are always similar but not all similar polygons are congruent
  • Taken to the properties of similar polygons that all corresponding angles are congruent, then AA similarity Postulate is taken from AAA Similarity Postulate. Obviously, if two pairs corresponding angles of two triangles are congruent, it follows that the last pair of corresponding angles are also congruent for the sum of interior angles in a triangle is 1800.
  • To have more emphasis in this postulate, we have

    25. 25. Basic Triangle Proportionality DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION Proof: In ∆ABC, let D and E be points on 𝐴𝐵 and 𝐵𝐶 respectively, such that 𝐷𝐸║ 𝐴𝐶. We have to prove that 𝐵𝐷 𝐷𝐴 = 𝐵𝐸 𝐸𝐶 . Since parallel lines form congruent corresponding angles, we have ∠𝐷 ≅ ∠𝐴 and ∠𝐸 ≅ ∠𝐶. By the AA Sim. Theo., we say ∆ABC∼∆DBE.
    26. 26. Basic Triangle Proportionality DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION Since corresponding sides of similar triangles are proportional, 𝐵𝐷 𝐵𝐴 = 𝐵𝐸 𝐵𝐶 . By Reciprocal Property, we have 𝐵𝐴 𝐵𝐷 = 𝐵𝐶 𝐵𝐸 . By Subtraction Property of Proportionality, we have 𝐵𝐴−𝐵𝐷 𝐵𝐷 = 𝐵𝐶−𝐵𝐸 𝐵𝐸 and hence 𝐷𝐴 𝐵𝐷 = 𝐸𝐶 𝐵𝐸 or 𝐵𝐷 𝐷𝐴 = 𝐵𝐸 𝐸𝐶 .

    28. 28. Triangle Angle Bisector Theorem DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION If a segment bisects an angle of a triangle, then it divides the opposite side into segments proportional to the other two sides. Proof: 1 2 3 4 Let 𝐴𝑋 bisect ∠A of ∆ABC. We must prove that 𝐵𝑋 𝑋𝐶 = 𝐴𝐵 𝐴𝐶 . B X C A Y Draw 𝐵𝑌 parallel to 𝐴𝑋. Extend 𝐶𝐴 so that it intersects 𝐵𝑌 at Y. Since 𝐵𝑌 ∥ 𝐴𝑋, we have 𝐵𝑋 𝑋𝐶 = 𝐴𝑌 𝐴𝐶 . By theorems involving parallel lines cut by a transversal, we also have ∠1 ≅ ∠3 and ∠4 ≅ ∠2.
    29. 29. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION If a segment bisects an angle of a triangle, then it divides the opposite side into segments proportional to the other two sides. Proof: 1 2 3 4 B X C A Y Since 𝐴𝑋 bisect ∠A, then ∠1 ≅ ∠2 and ∠4 ≅ ∠3. Thus, by the Isosceles Triangle Theorem, AY = AB. By substitution, we conclude that 𝐵𝑋 𝑋𝐶 = 𝐴𝐵 𝐴𝐶 . Triangle Angle Bisector Theorem
    30. 30. Check It Out! DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION In the figure below, ∠𝐵𝐴𝑋 ≅ ∠𝐶𝐴𝑋. Use the lengths to find the value of y. 𝐴𝐵 𝐴𝐶 = 𝐵𝑋 𝑋𝐶 14 y X C 9 A 15 15 9 = 𝑦 14 − 𝑦 15(14 – y) = 9y y = 8.75 Triangle Angle Bisector Theorem B
    31. 31. Consider ∆ABC such that ∠𝐶 is right and 𝐶𝐷 is the altitude to the hypotenuse. We have to prove that ∆ADC∼∆ACB∼∆CDB. Since 𝐶𝐷 ⊥ 𝐴𝐵, then ∠𝐴𝐷𝐶 = ∠𝐶𝐷𝐵 = ∠𝐴𝐶𝐵 = 900. Since ∠𝐴=∠𝐴, then by AA Sim. Theo., we have ∆ADC∼∆ACB. Using the same theorem and that ∠𝐵=∠𝐵, we have ∆ACB∼∆CDB. Hence, ∆ADC∼∆CDB by transitivity. Right Triangle Similarity DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
    32. 32. Consider the proportion . In this case, the means of the proportion are the same number, and that number is the geometric mean of the extremes. The geometric mean of two positive numbers is the positive square root of their product. So the geometric mean of a and b is the positive number x such that , or x2 = ab. Right Triangle Similarity DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
    33. 33. You can use Theorem on Right Triangle Similarity to write proportions comparing the side lengths of the triangles formed by the altitude to the hypotenuse of a right triangle. All the relationships in red involve geometric means. Right Triangle Similarity DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

    35. 35. Example 3: Finding Side Lengths in Right Triangles Find x, y, and z. 62 = (9)(x) 6 is the geometric mean of 9 and x. x = 4 Divide both sides by 9. y2 = (4)(13) = 52 y is the geometric mean of 4 and 13. Find the positive square root. z2 = (9)(13) = 117 z is the geometric mean of 9 and 13. Find the positive square root. Right Triangle Similarity DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

    38. 38. Example : Craft Application Jana is cutting a square of material for a tablecloth. The table’s diagonal is 36 inches. She wants the diagonal of the tablecloth to be an extra 10 inches so it will hang over the edges of the table. What size square should Jana cut to make the tablecloth? Round to the nearest inch. Jana needs a 45°-45°-90° triangle with a hypotenuse of 36 + 10 = 46 inches. Special Right Triangles DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
    39. 39. Check It Out! Example What if...? Tessa’s other dog is wearing a square bandana with a side length of 42 cm. What would you expect the circumference of the other dog’s neck to be? Round to the nearest centimeter. Tessa needs a 45°-45°-90° triangle with a hypotenuse of 42 cm. Special Right Triangles DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
    40. 40. Example: Using the 30º-60º-90º Triangle Theorem An ornamental pin is in the shape of an equilateral triangle. The length of each side is 6 centimeters. Josh will attach the fastener to the back along AB. Will the fastener fit if it is 4 centimeters long? Step 1 The equilateral triangle is divided into two 30°-60°-90° triangles. The height of the triangle is the length of the longer leg. Special Right Triangles DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
    41. 41. Example Continued Step 2 Find the length x of the shorter leg. Step 3 Find the length h of the longer leg. The pin is approximately 5.2 centimeters high. So the fastener will fit. Hypotenuse = 2(shorter leg)6 = 2x 3 = x Divide both sides by 2. Special Right Triangles DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
    42. 42. Check It Out! Example What if…? A manufacturer wants to make a larger clock with a height of 30 centimeters. What is the length of each side of the frame? Round to the nearest tenth.
