Warm Up
• At a certain time of day, a 6 ft man casts a 4 ft shadow. At

the same time of day, how long is the shadow of a tree that is 27 feet tall?

#1-12 all

• Do problems in your notebook, Write the question for full credit!! Show all work.

Quiz Tomorrow on Proving Triangles Similar.

Similarity in Right Triangles

Theorem: The altitude to the hypotenuse of a right triangle divides the triangle into two triangles that are similar to the original triangle and to each other.

Knowing this theorem, how can you solve for x and y.

Geometric Mean
• Proportions in which the means are equal.
• For any two positive numbers a and b, the geometric mean of a and b is the positive number x such that: a/x = x/b, then x = _____
• Ex. Find the geometric mean of 4 and 18.
Corollary to previous theorem

Corollary 1: The length of the altitude of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is the geom. Mean of the lengths of the segments of the hypotenuse.

Corollary 2: The altitude of the hyp. Of a right triangle separates the hypotenuse so that the length of each leg of the triangle is the geom. mean of the length of the adjacent hyp. segment and the length of the hyp.

Quiz/Assignment
• Complete Quiz, when you are finished, give Ms. Malik your quiz and begin your homework assignment.
• Due Wednesday
• P 394 #2-20 even, 34-36
• P 401 #1-23 odd (SHOW WORK!!)
• Set up all proportions and show work for FULL credit.
