Suppose right triangle ABC has one acute angle 47º. Suppose also that right triangle DEF has an acute angle 43º. How are triangles ABC and DEF related?

A right triangle with an acute angle of 47 degrees must have a second acute angle of 43 degrees. Therefore the two triangles are similar. They both have the same angles of 90, 47 and 43 degrees.
