  1. Similarity theorems and postulates involve matching either angles only, or the ratios of corresponding side lengths. Congruence theorems and postultates invove actual lengths of corresponding sides. See http://www.mathwarehouse.com/geometry/similar/triangles/similar-triangle-theorems.php

    An example of using trig to measure a height would be that of a tree that could not be climbed.
