- 1. Similar Triangles
- 2. The AAA Similarity Postulate If three angles of one triangle are congruent to three angle of another triangle, then the two triangles are similar.
- 3. The AAA Similarity Postulate If β π΄ β β π·, πππβ π΅ β β πΈ, β πΆ β β πΉ. Then βπ΄π΅πΆ~βπ·πΈπΉ.
- 4. The AA Similarity Theorem If β π΄ β β π·, πππβ π΅ β β πΈ. Then βπ΄π΅πΆ~βπ·πΈπΉ.
- 5. Example 1 RI II NO, RI =8, RB=3x+4,ON=16, and OB=x+18 Find a. RB b. OB Ans. x=2 RB=10 OB=20
- 6. The SAS Similarity Theorem If two sides of one triangle are proportional to the corresponding two sides of another triangle and their respective included angles are congruent, then the triangles are similar.
- 7. The SAS Similarity Theorem If π΄π΅ π·πΈ = π΄πΆ π·πΉ πππ β π΄ β β π·, πβππ βπ΄π΅πΆ~βπ·πΈπΉ
- 8. Example 2 Are the two triangles similar? Justify your answer.
- 9. The SSS Similarity Theorem If the sides of one triangle are proportional to the corresponding sides of a second triangle, then the triangles are similar.
- 10. Similar right triangles The L-L Similarity Theorem If the legs of a right triangle are proportional to the corresponding legs of another right triangle, the right triangles are similar.
- 11. The L-L Similarity Theorem If β πΆ πππβ πΉ πππ πππβπ‘ ππππππ πππ π΄πΆ π΅πΆ = π·πΉ πΈπΉ πβππ βπ΄π΅πΆ~βπ·πΈπΉ
- 12. Similar right triangles The H-L Similarity Theorem If the hypotenuse and a leg of a right triangle are proportional to the corresponding hypotenuse and leg of another right triangle, then the right triangles are similar.
- 13. The H-L Similarity Theorem If β πΆ πππβ πΉ πππ πππβπ‘ ππππππ πππ π΄π΅ π·πΈ = π΄πΆ π·πΉ πβππ βπ΄π΅πΆ~βπ·πΈπΉ
- 14. Example 3 In the figure UA β₯ π΄π, ππΈ β₯ πΈπ , ππ΄ = 24, π΄π = 10, π πΈ = 5π₯ + 2, πππ πΈππ₯ + 3. π·ππ‘ππππππ π₯ π π π‘βππ‘ βππ΄π~βπ πΈπ.
- 15. Proportional Segments The Proportional Segments Theorem If a line intersects two sides of a triangle at distinct points and is parallel to the third side, the line divides the two sides in two proportional segments.
- 16. The Proportional Segments Theorem πππ πΌπ π || BC, then π΅π π΄π = πΆπ π΄π
- 17. Example 4 In βπππ , AB||QR. If OA=5, PA=2, and BR=10, find PB.
- 18. Example 5 A flagpole 8m high casts a shadow of 12m, while a nearby building casts a shadow of 60m. How high is a building?
- 19. Proportional Segments The Bisector of an angle of a triangle divides the opposite side into segments which are proportional to the adjacent sides.
- 20. Proportional Segments If βπ΄π΅πΆ with AD an angle bisector, then π΄π΅ π΄πΆ = π΅π· πΆπ·
- 21. Example 6 Find the value of x.
