1 47 Similar Triangles An overhead projector forms an image on the screen which has the same shape as the image on the transparency but with the size altered. Two figures that have the same shape but not necessarily the same size are called similar. In the case of triangles, this means that the two triangles will have the same angles and their sides will be in the same proportion (for example, the sides of one triangle might all be 3 times the length of the sides of the other). More formally, we have the following definition: Two triangles ABC and DEF are similar, written ABC DEF if and only if (i) m( A) = m( D), m( B) = m( E), and m( C) = m( F ) (ii) AB DE = AC DF = BC EF. The common ratio in (ii) is called the scaled-factor. An example of two similar triangles is shown in Figure 47.1 Figure 47.1 Example 47.1 Suppose in Figure 47.1 that EF = 6 cm, BC = 2cm and AB = 3cm. What is the value of DE? Solution. Since DE = 3AB and AB = 3 then DE = 9 cm The proofs of various properties of similar triangles depend upon certain properties of parallel lines. Mainly, we need the following theorem which we state without proof. 1

2 Theorem 47.1 Let P Q be a line intersecting an angle BAD. Then AP the lines PQ and BD are parallel. = AQ AB AD if and only if When we attempted to prove two triangles to be congruent we had a few tests SSS, SAS, ASA. In a similar way we have a few tests to help us determine whether two triangles are similar. If the measures of two angles of a triangle are given, then the measure of the third angle is known automatically. Thus, the shape of the triangle is completely determined. Since similar triangles have the same shape, we have the following similarity condition. Theorem 47.2 (AA Test) If two angles of one triangle are congruent with the corresponding two angles of another triangle, then the two triangles are similar. Proof. Let ABC DEF denote a correspondence of ABC and DEF in which m( A) = m( D) and m( B) = m( E). Then m( A) + m( B) = m( D)+m( E). But 180 m( C) = m( A)+m( B) and 180 m( F ) = m( D) + m( E). Hence, m( C) = m( F ). Now, let F be a point on DF and E be a point on DE such that DF = AC and DE = AB. Then by SAS test for congruent triangles we have ABC = DE F. Hence, m( C) = m( DF E ) and m( DF E ) = m( DF E). This last equality implies that F E F E by the Corresponding Angles Theorem. 2

3 Hence, Theorem 47.1 implies DF DF = DE DE. Since DF = AC and DE = AB then we have AC DF = AB DE. Now, let D be a point on F E such that F D = CB. Then by repeating the above argument we find AC DF = BC F E. It follows that AC DF = BC F E = AB DE. This shows ABC DEF Example 47.2 Consider Figure Show that BD CE = AD AE = AB AC = 2 5 Figure 47.2 Solution. Since m( A) = m( A) and m( ADB) = m( AEC) then by the AA test we have ABD ACE. Hence, BD CE = AD AE = AB AC = 6 15 = 2 5 3

4 Theorem 47.3 (SAS Test) If two sides of one triangle are proportional to the two corresponding sides of the second triangle and the angles between the two sides of each triangle are equal then the two triangles are similar. Proof. Let E be a point on the line segement DE such that DE = AB. Also, let F be a point on DF such that DF = AC. See Figure Figure 47.3 Since AB DE = AC DF then DE DE = DF DF. By Theorem 47.1, the lines EF and E F are parallel. Thus, m( DEF ) = m( DE F ) and m( DF E) = m( DF E ). By the AA similarity theorem we have DE F DEF. But by the SAS congruence test, we have ABC = DE F and in particular ABC DE F since two congruent triangles are also similar. Hence, ABC DEF 4

5 Theorem 47.4 (SSS Test) If the three sides of one triangle are proportional to the three corresponding sides of another triangle, then the two triangles are similar. Proof. Let E be a point on the line segement DE such that DE = AB. Also, let F be a point on DF such that DF = AC. See Figure Figure 47.4 Since AB DE = AC DF = BC EF then DE DE = DF DF = BC EF. By Theorem 47.1, the lines EF and E F are parallel. By SAS similarity theorem, we have DE F DEF. Thus, But DE DE DE DE = DF DF = E F EF. = BC EF. Hence, E F = BC. By the SSS congruence theorem we have ABC = DE F. Hence, ABC DE F. Since DE F DEF then ABC DEF Example 47.3 Show that the triangles in the figure below are similar. 5

6 Solution. Since AB = AC = BC DE DF EF Practice Problems = 2 then by Theorem 47.4 ABC DEF Problem 47.1 Which of the following triangles are always similar? (a) right triangles (b) isosceles triangles (c) equilateral triangles Problem 47.2 Show that if ABC A B C and A B C A B C then ABC A B C. Problem 47.3 Each pair of triangles is similar. By which test can they be proved to be similar? 6

7 Problem 47.4 Suppose ABC DEF with scaled factor k. (a) Compare the perimeters of the two triangles. (b) Compare the areas of the two triangles. Problem 47.5 Areas of two similar triangles are 144 sq.cm. and 81 sq.cm. If one side of the first triangle is 6 cm then find the corresponding side of the second triangle. Problem 47.6 The side of an equilateral triangle ABC is 5 cm. Find the length of the side of another equilateral triangle P QR whose area is four times area of ABC. Problem 47.7 The corresponding sides of two similar triangles are 4 cm and 6 cm. Find the ratio of the areas of the triangles. Problem 47.8 A clever outdoorsman whose eye-level is 2 meters above the ground, wishes 7

8 to find the height of a tree. He places a mirror horizontally on the ground 20 meters from the tree, and finds that if he stands at a point C which is 4 meters from the mirror B, he can see the reflection of the top of the tree. How high is the tree? Problem 47.9 A child 1.2 meters tall is standing 11 meters away from a tall building. A spotlight on the ground is located 20 meters away from the building and shines on the wall. How tall is the child s shadow on the building? Problem On a sunny day, Michelle and Nancy noticed that their shadows were different lengths. Nancy measured Michelle s shadow and found that it was 96 inches long. Michelle then measured Nancy s shadow and found that it was 102 inches long. (a) Who do you think is taller, Nancy or Michelle? Why? (b) If Michelle is 5 feet 4 inches tall, how tall is Nancy? (c) If Nancy is 5 feet 4 inches tall, how tall is Michelle? Problem An engineering firm wants to build a bridge across the river shown below.
