Similarity in the Real World
Octahedral fluorite is a crystal found in nature.
It grows in the shape of an octahedron, which is
a solid figure with eight triangular faces. The
triangles in different-sized fluorite crystals
are similar figures. Similar figures have the
same shape but not necessarily the same size.
7
Vocabulary
SIMILAR FIGURES
Two figures are similar if The measures of their corresponding angles are equal. The ratios of the lengths of the corresponding sides are proportional.
8
Vocabulary
Matching sides of two or more polygons are called
corresponding sides, and matching angles are
called corresponding angles.
