8 3 Similar Triangles

  1. 1. Similar Triangles Focus – Apply the properties of similar triangles and tomorrow, prove that triangles are similar. Lesson 8-3 WA State Standards: G.3.A and G.3.B
  2. 2. Congruent Triangles …have matching angles that are congruent. …have matching sides that are congruent. A B C D F E 100° 35° 45° 115 ft 150 ft 100 ft 150 ft 115 ft 100 ft 35° 100° 45°
  3. 3. Congruent Triangles …have matching angles that are congruent. …have matching sides that are congruent. A B C D F E 100° 35° 45° 115 ft 150 ft 100 ft 150 ft 115 ft 100 ft 35° 100° 45°
  4. 4. Similar Triangles <ul><li>IF and ONLY IF </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Vertices match up so corresponding angles are congruent. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Corresponding sides are in proportion . </li></ul></ul>30° 30° 75° 75° 75° 75° 16 12 12 16 6 8 Ratios of each side are
  5. 5. Triangle Similarity Postulate <ul><li>If two angles of one triangle are equal in measure to two angles of another triangle, </li></ul><ul><li>then the two triangles are similar . </li></ul><ul><li>AA (angle/angle) similarity </li></ul>
  6. 6. AA? <ul><li>You will also see: </li></ul><ul><li>SAS </li></ul><ul><li>ASA </li></ul><ul><li>SSS </li></ul><ul><li>Knowing these letters will help with proofs later . </li></ul><ul><li>Side/Angle/Side </li></ul><ul><li>Angle/Side/Angle </li></ul><ul><li>Side/Side/Side </li></ul>
  7. 7. Are they similar? <ul><li>Only one angle is given as congruent. Two must be given to use Angle/Angle or AA Similarity . </li></ul>
  8. 8. Are they similar? Use Angle/Angle or AA Similarity . Two congruent angles show triangles are similar.
  9. 9. Similar? <ul><li>Find the missing side of each triangle to find two 30° angles and a 120° angle for each of these similar triangles. </li></ul>120° 30° 30° 30°
  10. 10. Is ABC similar to AEF? A E F C B Sometimes it helps to separate the two triangles and look at each angle separately.
