Homework Help: MATH URGENT!

Posted by Ashley on Tuesday, April 24, 2007 at 8:48pm.

Ok I don't understand how to find similar figures when using proportions. Can someone explain it to me?

Two figures that have the same shape are said to be similar.

When two figures are similar, the ratios of the lengths of their corresponding sides are equal.

To determine if the triangles are similar, compare their corresponding sides.
If two objects have the same shape, they are called "similar." When two figures are similar, the ratios of the lengths of their corresponding sides are equal. To determine the triangles shown are similar, compare their corresponding.

lets say your comparing a figure abc and def ato b is 6 and and a to c is 10.
de is 3 and d to f is 10. You would put ac over ab.Then df over de and you know its a proportion because both can be divided by 2

tHANK YOU SOOOO MUCH.
