Properties of Similar TrianglesCovid19 has led the world to go through a phenomenal transition . Elearning is the future today. Stay Home , Stay Safe and keep learning!!! Properties of Similar TrianglesTwo triangles are said to be similar, if their i) Corresponding angles are equal and ii) Corresponding sides are proportional. According to the figure. ΔABC and ΔPQR are similar, Since ∠ A = ∠P ∠B = ∠Q ∠C = ∠R The symbol for “similar triangle is ~ . Thus ΔABC ~ ΔPQR So corresponding sides are in proportion.
Note : 1) Similar triangles are equiangular. 2) In similar triangles corresponding sides are proportional. 3) Congruent triangles are similar, but the converse is not always true. 4) Triangles similar to the same triangle are similar to each other. 5) Similar figures have the same shape, but not necessarily the same size. If the corresponding sides are in proportion then the two triangles are similar.That means the converse is also true. Q.1 Fill in the blanks. 1) Two triangles are similar,if their corresponding angles are ______.(proportional / equal ) (Ans) 2) Two polygons of the same number of sides are similar, if (a) their corresponding angles are ________ and (b) their corresponding sides are _________ ( equal , proportional,congruent) (Ans) Q.2 Write True Or False. 1) Any two figures are congruent. (Ans) 2) Any two congruent figures are similar. (Ans) 3) Two polygons are similar, if their corresponding sides are proportional. (Ans) Q.3 Similarity of two triangles are given, write the proportion of corresponding sides. 1) ΔABC ~ ΔPQR. (Ans) 2) ΔLMN ~ ΔDEF. (Ans) 3) ΔXYZ ~ ΔRAT.
