question

What information is necessary to prove two triangles are similar by the SAS similarity theorem?

answer

You need to show that two sides of one triangle are proportional to two corresponding sides of another triangle, with the included corresponding angles being congruent.

question

What additional information is needed to prove that the triangles are similar?To prove △XYZ ~ △MNO using SSS, you need to know that __________.Now that you know the length of XZ, you need to know that angle O is congruent to _________ to prove △XYZ ~ △MNO using SAS.

answer

MN = 6 and XZ = 17.5 people
angle Z
