LESSON 7-2

Determine whether the parallelograms are similar. Explain.

Corresponding sides of the two parallelograms are proportional.

Check that corresponding angles are congruent.

B corresponds to K, but mB≠mK, so corresponding angles are not congruent.

Although corresponding sides are proportional, the parallelograms are not similar because the corresponding angles are not congruent.

Quick Check

Because ABC ~ YXZ, you can write and solve a proportion.

LESSON 7-2

A painting is 24 in. wide by 36 in. long. The length of a postcard reduction of the painting is 6 in. How wide is the postcard?

The postcard and the painting are similar rectangles, so you can write a proportion. Let x represent the width of the postcard.

x = 4

The postcard is 4 in. wide.
