If two sides of a triangle are proportional to the corresponding sides of another triangle, then the

triangles are similar.

Is this Always True, Sometimes True, or Never True?

If you have to construct the second triangle, do you not see the two proportional sides flapping at an arbitrary angle?

It is always true if the included angles are equal. As it is, it is sometimes true.
