Similar Polygons What are similar polygons? Two polygons are similar if corresponding (matching) angles are congruent and the lengths of corresponding sides are proportional. Congruent Figures • In order to be congruent, two figures must be the same size and same shape. • ~ = Similar Figures • Similar figures must be the same shape, but their sizes may be different. • ~ Angles and Sides in Similar Polygons Angles Sides ∠A ≅ ∠ E AB ~ EF ∠B ≅ ∠ F AC ~ EG ∠C ≅ ∠ G BC ~ FG A ΔABC ~ ΔEFG E B C F G You can find the missing length of a side in a pair of similar figures, by using ΔRST ~ ΔUVW proportions R U x ft. 6 ft.

The first is 4 in. wide and 15 in. long. The second is 9 in. wide. Find the length of the second rectangle. Determine the length of the missing side • Two rectangles are similar. One is 5 cm by 12 cm. The longer side of the second rectangle is 8 cm greater than twice the shorter side. Find its length and width.
