```SIMILARITIES AND CONGRUENCY
Similarity ( all lengths in examples and in exercises are in cm)
Two figures having the same shape are known as similar figures. The figures A and B
show is a example of similar figure. So in short similarity is a relation between angles
and sides.
A
B
Two congruent figures must also be similar.
When a figure is enlarged or reduced, the new figure is similar to the original one.
e.g.
find out the figures similar to figure A:
A
B
C
D
SOLUTION:
D only.
Similar Triangles
If two triangles are similar, then
i. their corresponding angles are equal;
ii. their corresponding sides are proportional.
B
A
Y
C
X
Z
In the figure, if
ABC =
XYZ,
then ‹A = ‹X, ‹B = ‹Y, ‹C = ‹Z and AB = BC = AC
XY YZ XZ
Example
In the figure,
ABC is similar to
RPQ. Find the value of the unknowns.
B
39
x
A
52
z
C
Solution:
Since
ABC =
RPQ,
‹B = ‹P
So x = 90o.
Also,
AB = BC
RP PQ
Also,
39 = 58
y 48
so
AC = BC
RQ PQ
z = 52
60 48
48 * 39
52
=y
so
Y = 36
60 * 52
48
=z
z = 65
CONDITIONS FOR TRIANGLES TO BE SIMILAR
A)
THREE ANGLES EQUAL.
If two triangles have three pairs of equal corresponding angles, then they must be similar.
(Reference: AAA)
Example:
Show that
ABC and
PQR in the figures are similar.
R
A
P
75o
35o
35o
75o
B
C
Q
Solution:
In
ABC and
PQR as shown, ‹B = ‹Q, ‹C = ‹R,
‹A = 180o – 35o – 75o = 70o.
‹P = 180o – 35o – 75o = 70o
so ‹A = ‹P
therefore ABC is similar to PQR (AAA).
B)
THREE SIDES PROPORTIONAL
if the three pairs of side of two triangles are proportional, then the two triangles must be
similar.
(Reference: 3 sides proportional)
a
b
d
e
c
f
Example:
Show that
PQR and
LMN in the figure are similar.
L
3
R
Q
16
2
4
8
P
N
12
M
In
PQR and
LMN as shown, LM = 8 = 4, MN = 12 = 4, LN = 16 = 4
PQ 2
QR
3
PR 4
So LM = MN = LN
PQ QR
PR
Therefore
PQR is similar to LMN (3 sides proportional)
Example 2:
Are the two triangles in the figure similar? Give reasons.
A
X

4.5
Z
C
B
9
Solution:
AB = 4 =2, AC = 12 = 2, BC = 9 = 2
XZ 2
XY 6
YZ 4.5
Yes,
ABC is proportional to
XZY as their 3 sides are proportional.
C)
TWO SIDES PROPORTIONAL AND THEIR INCLUDED
ANGLE EQUAL.
If two pairs of sides of two triangles are proportional and their includes angles are equal,
then the two triangles are similar.
(Reference: ratio of two sides, and the angle between two sides equal)
p
r
P = q, x = y
R s

Example:

ABC and

Solution:
‹B = ‹E‹‹‹
AB = 4 = 2, BC = 9 = 2
EF 2
DE 4.5
Therefore, AB = BC
EF DE
Therefore, ABC is similar to
sides equal)
FED (ratio of two sides, the angle between two are
Example 2:
Are the two triangles ZYX and CBA similar? Give reasons.
Solution
‹ZYX = 180o – 78o – 40o = 62o, ‹ZYX = ‹CBA = 62o.
BC = 6 = 2, AB = 4 = 2
YZ 3
XY 2
Yes,
ZYX is similar to
equal)
CBA (ratio of two sides, the angle between two are sides
Similar polygons
Two polygons are said to be similar if there is correspondence between their vertices such
that:
a. Corresponding angles are congruent
b. Lengths of corresponding sides are in proportion.
A
D
V
Y
W
B
X
C
Angle A is similar to angle V
Angle B is similar to angel W
Angle C is similar to angle X
Angel D is similar to angel Y
AB = BC = CD = DA
VW WX XY VY
If the above interpretation is accepted the polygons are similar.
Perimeter of similar polygons:
If two polygons are similar, the ratio of their perimeter equals to the ratio of the lengths
of corresponding sides.
So for the above diagram the perimeter can be found like this.
P = AB
P2 VW
AREA

The two figures are similar the ratio of corresponding sides as k.
Area of ABCD = ab
Area of WXYZ = Ka * Kb
Therefore K2ab = K2
ab
This a general rule for finding area for similar figures.

CONGRUENCE
Two figures having the same shape and size are called congruent figures.
Example of congruent shapes:
C
If two figures are congruent they will fit exactly on each other
e.g.
find out the congruent figures among the following:
.
D
B
C
A
E
F
G
G
In the above diagram only figure D, E and A, G are similar.
Congruent Triangles
when two triangles are congruent, all their corresponding sides and corresponding angles
are equal.
C
E.g.
A
X
B
Z
In the figure, if
‹A = ‹X
‹B = ‹Y
‹C = ‹Z
ABC is congruent to
XYZ then,
AB = XY
and BC = YZ
CA = ZX
e.g.
name the pair of congruent triangles in the figure.

For two congruent triangles, for their corresponding sides and angles are equal.
Therefore p = 6, q = 5 and r = 50o.
