Congruent Shapes: shapes that are the exactly the same. But these shapes could be
To see if shapes are similar: 1. Check the of their corresponding sides. 2. Cross multiply this ratio. 3. If the cross multiplications equal each other, the shapes are These triangles are similar because their corresponding sides are in proportion to each other. 1 2 2 4 _1 _ = 2_ 2 4 1*4=4 2*2=4 Write a proportion and find the cross products to find out if each pair of triangles is similar.
