Similar shapes - summarySimilar shapes - summaryabcxyzRatio a:b:c = ratio x:y:zSo: a = x a = x b = yb y c z c zTo see whether 2 shapes are similar, put eachratio in its simplest form and see if they match.Scale factor = new measurementold measurement- Scale factor more than 1 => shape gets bigger- Scale factor less than 1 => shape gets smaller- Congruent shapes are similar shapes with SF = 1Old measurement x SF = new measurementRemember: only side lengths change; angles stay the same!SFnewold
