## Parts of Similar Triangles

Sec: 6.5

Sol:

### Proportional Perimeters

• If two triangles are similar, then the _____________ are proportional to the measures of corresponding sides.

Remember: The perimeter is the sum of all the ______________ of a figure.

Perimeters

Sides

Example:In the figure at the right, ABC ~ XYZ.The following proportions are true:

### Example

• In the figure below, ABD ~ ADC.If AD = 16, AC = 31, and DC = 23, find theperimeter of ABD.

### Theorem 6.8

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

Remember: The _________________ is a segment that goes from a vertex and is perpendicular to the opposite “side”.

Altitudes

Altitude

### Theorem 6.10

• If two triangles are similar, then the measures of the corresponding ________ are proportional to the measures of the corresponding sides.

• Remember: A _______ goes from a vertex to the ________ of the opposite side.
