http://feromax.com/cgi-bin/ProveIt.pl …..scroll to bottom and do the similar and congruent triangle proofs … come back here and explain what is necessary to say that 2 triangles are similar.

umm.. last one of that question// i dont get it // one question with some plus thing–

to say that 2 triangles are similar you have to have 2 angles. And congruent triangle proof #4 was a tough problem

ya, i don’t get #4 either. really hard =P but ya, for a triangle to be similar, the angles have to be the same, just the lengths of the legs are different.

To say that two triangles are similar you need to have at least two corresponding angles are equal or that the corresponding sides have the same proportions. Ya, number 4 of congruent triangles was hard. After I finally understood how to do the question and I thought I got it right it had me switch the third and second last steps and I don’t understand why it had me do that. It had me saying the exact same thing for two steps in a row and only having different reasons for these two steps. I had something in between these two steps and I thought it made more sense that way but it said I was wrong. I don’t know it just seemed weird.
bye,
laura 🙂

idk if i missed something when i was sick on wednesday or if it was new for everyone but i was totally lost on the similar triangles questions… i had no clue what anything meant. lol i understood the congruent triangles questions but i agree that #4 was hard… it didnt seem like all those steps were nessessary. like it seemed like you could just tell that the ray bisected the angles because of cpctc… it was confusing with all those steps…

ya i didnt get congruent triangles #4 that was a tuff one… if we could go over that one in class that would be AWSOME!!

yah 4 was pretty tricky and so was 3 of the similar triangles

ya, the similar triangles are definitely harder than the congruent ones. robert… a-w-E-s-o-m-e! learn to spell!!!!!!!!!!!!!
