THEOREM 8.2 Side-Side-Side (SSS) Similarity Theorem

If the corresponding sides of two triangles are proportional, then the triangles are similar.

Which of the following three triangles are similar?

SOLUTION

To decide which of the triangles are similar, consider the ratios of the lengths of corresponding sides.

Ratios of Side Lengths ofABC andDEF

Because all of the ratios are equal, ABC~ DEF

Using the SSS Similarity Theorem

Which of the three triangles are similar?

THEOREM 8.3 Side-Angle-Side (SAS) Similarity Theorem

If an angle of one triangle is congruent to an angle of a second triangle and the lengths of the sides including these angles are proportional, then the triangles are similar.

then XYZ ~ MNP.

Because S is the included angle in both triangles, use the SAS Similarity Theorem to conclude that RST ~ PSQ.

Use the given lengths to prove thatRST ~ PSQ.

SOLUTION

The side lengths SR and ST are proportional to the corresponding side lengths of PSQ.

Parallel lines give congruent angles Use AA ~ Postulate

Only one Angle is Known Use SAS ~ Theorem

No, Need to know the included angle.
