What characteristics make shapes similar?
- identify the angles and lengths of all sides.
- compare lengths by dividing corresponding lengths to find the scale factor
- if the quotient of all equations are the same then that’s one way to prove that they are similar.
- the second way is to compare all angles.
- find all the angles of the shape and compare them with the angles of the other shape.
- if all angles are the same, they are similar.
