Similar triangles are triangles that have the
same shape but not necessarily the same size.
?ABC ? ?DEF
When we say that triangles are similar there are
several repercussions that come from it.
?A ? ?D
?B ? ?E
?C ? ?F
10
Six of those statements are true as a result of
the similarity of the two triangles. However, if
we need to prove that a pair of triangles are
similar how many of those statements do we need?
Because we are working with triangles and the
measure of the angles and sides are dependent on
each other. We do not need all six. There are
three special combinations that we can use to
prove similarity of triangles.
1. PPP Similarity Theorem ? 3 pairs of
proportional sides
2. PAP Similarity Theorem ? 2 pairs of
proportional sides and congruent angles between
them
3. AA Similarity Theorem ? 2 pairs of
congruent angles

proportional sides
?ABC ? ?DFE
12
2. PAP Similarity Theorem ? 2 pairs of
proportional sides and congruent angles between
them
m?H m?K
?GHI ? ?LKJ
13
The PAP Similarity Theorem does not work
unless the congruent angles fall between the
proportional sides. For example, if we have the
situation that is shown in the diagram below, we
cannot state that the triangles are similar. We
do not have the information that we need.
Angles I and J do not fall in between sides GH
and HI and sides LK and KJ respectively.

3. AA Similarity Theorem ? 2 pairs of
congruent angles

It is possible for two triangles to be similar
when they have 2 pairs of angles given but only
one of those given pairs are congruent.

triangle.

Triangles are similar () if corresponding angles
are equal and the ratios of the lengths of
corresponding sides are equal.

Example 6-1b
Determine whether the pair of triangles is
Answer Since the corresponding angles have
equal measures, the triangles are similar.
21
If the product of the extremes equals the product
of the means then a proportion exists.

Congruent Figures
• In order to be congruent, two figures must be the
same size and same shape.

40
Similar Figures
• Similar figures must be the same shape, but their
sizes may be different.

41
Similar Figures
• This is the symbol that means similar.
• These figures are the same shape but different
sizes.

42
SIZES
• Although the size of the two shapes can be
different, the sizes of the two shapes must
differ by a factor.

When changing the size of a figure, will the
angles of the figure also change?

Nope! Remember, the sum of all 3 angles in a
triangle MUST add to 180 degrees. If the size of
the angles were increased, the sum would
exceed 180 degrees.

Similarity is used to answer real life questions.
• Suppose that you wanted to find the height of
this tree.

68
Unfortunately all that you have is a tape
measure, and you are too short to reach the top
of the tree.
69
You can measure the length of the trees shadow.

10 feet
2 feet
71
If you know how tall you are, then you can
determine how tall the tree is.

The tree must be 30 ft tall. Boy, thats a tall
tree!
