c. In general, if you know the values of b, c, and m<A, can values of a, m<B, and m<C always be found?
__________________________________________________________________________________________
Could any values of a, m<B, or m<C have two or more values when b, c, and m<A are given? Explain.

d. Summarize your work in Parts a-c in an if-then statement that begins as follows:
In a triangle, if the lengths of two sides and the measure of the angle included between those sides are known,
then _____________________________________________________________________________________.
2. Next, examine
shown below. In both cases, you have information given about two sides
and an included angle. In

b. Complete the following statement:
SIDE-ANGLE-SIDE (SAS) SIMILARITY THEOREM: If an angle of one triangle has the same measure
as an angle of a second triangle, and if the lengths of the corresponding side including these angles are
multiplied by the same scale factor k, then _________________________________.
