There are 480 sophomores and 520 juniors in a high school. Find the ratio of juniors to sophomores.

A strip of wood molding that is 33 inches long is cut into two pieces whose lengths are in the ratio of 7:4. What are the lengths of the two pieces?

5-Minute Check 1

Learning Target:

I will be able to identify similar polygons and solve problems using the properties of similar polygons.

Standard 4.0

Students prove basic theorems involving similarity.

Ch 9.2Similar Polygons

• polygon – a closed figure in a plane formed by segments called sides.

• similar polygons – polygons that are the same shape but not necessarily the same size.

• scale drawing – used to represent something that is too large or too small to be drawn to actual size.

Vocabulary

Concept

Use a Similarity Statement

If ΔABC ~ ΔRST, list all pairs of congruent angles and write a proportion that relates the corresponding sides.

Example 1

Use a Similarity Statement

Use the similarity statement.

ΔABC ~ ΔRST

Congruent Angles: A R, B S,C T

Example 1

A.HGK  QPR

B.

C.K  R

D.GHK  QPR

If ΔGHK ~ ΔPQR, determine which of the following similarity statements is not true.

Example 1

Identify Similar Polygons

A. MENUSTan is designing a new menu for the restaurant where he works. Determine whether the size for the new menu is similar to the original menu. If so, write the similarity statement and scale factor. Explain your reasoning.

Example 2

Identify Similar Polygons

Step 1 Compare corresponding angles.

Since all angles of a rectangle are right angles and right angles are congruent, corresponding angles are congruent.

Step 2 Compare corresponding sides.

Answer:Since corresponding sides are not proportional, ABCD is not similar to FGHK. So, the menus are not similar.

Example 2

Identify Similar Polygons

B. MENUSTan is designing a new menu for the restaurant where he works. Determine whether the size for the new menu is similar to the original menu. If so, write the similarity statement and scale factor. Explain your reasoning.

Identify Similar Polygons

Step 1 Compare corresponding angles.

Since all angles of a rectangle are right angles and right angles are congruent, corresponding angles are congruent.

Step 2 Compare corresponding sides.

Answer:Since corresponding sides are proportional, ABCD ~ RSTU. So, the menus are similar with a scale factor of .

Example 2

A.BCDE ~ FGHI, scale factor =

B.BCDE ~ FGHI, scale factor =

C.BCDE ~ FGHI, scale factor =

D.BCDE is not similar to FGHI.

AB = 6, RS = 4, DE = 8, UV = y + 1

Cross Products Property

Multiply.

Subtract 6 from each side.

Divide each side by 6 and simplify.

Concept

Use a Scale Factor to Find Perimeter

If ABCDE ~ RSTUV, find the scale factor of ABCDE to RSTUV and the perimeter of each polygon.

Example 4

The scale factor ABCDE to RSTUV is or .

VU

Since DC AB and AE  DE, the perimeter of ABCDE is 6 + 6 + 6 + 4 + 4 or 26.

Use a Scale Factor to Find Perimeter

Write a proportion.

4(10.5) = 7 ● DC Cross Products Property

6 = DC Divide each side by 7.

Example 4

Use a Scale Factor to Find Perimeter

Use the perimeter of ABCDE and scale factor to write a proportion. Let x represent the perimeter of RSTUV.

Theorem 7.1

Substitution

4x = (26)(7) Cross Products Property

x = 45.5 Solve.

Answer:The perimeter of ABCDE is 26 and the perimeter of RSTUV is 45.5.

Example 4

If LMNOP ~ VWXYZ, find the perimeter of each polygon.

A.LMNOP = 40, VWXYZ = 30

B.LMNOP = 32, VWXYZ = 24

C.LMNOP = 45, VWXYZ = 40

D.LMNOP = 60, VWXYZ = 45
