Similar Polygons

J Pavlicek (2005) Edited J Stoops (2007)

Objectives

- Identify similar polygons
- Use similar polygons to solve real-life problems

Def Two polygons are similar if they have the

same shape.

If two polygons are similar, then their vertices

can be paired such that . . . 1.) corresponding

angles are congruent 2.) corresponding sides

are proportional

Similarity Statement ?

Def The scale factor of similar polygons is the

ratio of any pair of corresponding sides.

Example What is the scale factor of the above

similar triangles?

1.) What is the scale factor of ABCD to GBEF?

2.) Find the values of x and y.

Theorem If two polygons are similar, then the

ratio of their perimeters is equal to

the scale factor.

above theorem.
