1 Analytical Geometry Similarity, Congruence and Proofs Similarity, Congruence and Proofs How tall is the Eiffel Tower? How would you measure its height? Did someone actually go up to it with a tape measure? Did the builders measure it piece by piece when it was being constructed? We can actually use geometry and algebra to measure the height of anything. You can measure the height of the Eiffel Tower just by standing next to it! All you would need are a few basic measurements. In this module we will learn how to use similar shapes to measure things from the real world. You will also learn how to make your own geometric constructions and be sure that they are mathematically accurate. Essential Questions What does it mean for shapes to be similar? How do transformations affect similarity? How can two triangles be proven similar? How can we use similar and congruent triangles to solve problems? What makes two triangles congruent? How can geometric theorems be used to solve problems? Can you use tools to make accurate geometric constructions? Module Minute In order for shapes to be similar they have to share some of the same measurements. A triangle can be enlarged and still be similar to its original shape because it has the same angle measurements. Transformations like this can still preserve a shape's similarity to its original features. If we know that two shapes are similar we can use that information to find missing values in one shape or the other. We can also use congruence theorems to show that two triangles are congruent. Different congruence theorems we can use would be if the two triangles have the same side lengths or if they have two sides with the angle between them congruent or even two angles with the side between them congruent. Key Words Alternate Interior Angles Angles within two lines but are on opposite sides of a transversal. Complementary Angles Two angles whose sum is 90. Congruent The same shape and the same size. Equilateral Equal sides and equal angles. Intersection The point where lines cross over one another. Point A position in space. Ray A line that has a starting point but no endpoint. Scale Factor A ratio between two sets of measurements. Similar Figures Having the same shape but not necessarily the same size. Supplementary Angles Two angles whose sum is 180. Transformation A change or position or size, including reflection, translation, rotation, or enlargement. A handout of these key words and definitions is also available in the sidebar.

Similarity and Transformations Investigation Assignment: Similarity in the Coordinate Plane Complete the Similarity in the Coordinate Plane Task found in the sidebar. This is an introductory task that will help you discover some of the learning objectives of this module. Submit your answers. (You do not need to submit your graph paper.) When two polygons are similar, they share many characteristics. Once we know what these characteristics are, we can use this information to find missing pieces of each shape.

2 View the following video to learn more: Example 1 The following triangles are similar. Since the triangles are similar we can determine the scale factor and use that to find the missing sides. Scale Factor? To find the scale figure, create a ratio with corresponding sides. Since the sides labeled 12 and 4 are corresponding we can compare them in a ratio = 3 By dividing, we can find the scale factor, 3. To find the missing values, we can either apply the scale factor or solve using ratios. To find y, we will use the scale factor. The side labeled with 8 corresponds to the side labeled with y. Since 8 is in the smaller triangle, we can multiply it by the scale factor to find y. Let's find x by solving with ratios. Set two sets of corresponding sides equal to each other. Then solve by cross multiplying: Example 2 When polygons are similar, corresponding angles are congruent and corresponding sides are proportional. In the above picture, the corresponding angles are congruent. <H <M, <G <L, <F <K, <J <N. (This is read, angle H is congruent to angle M.) The corresponding sides can be written as a statement of proportionality. Once it is determined that two polygons are similar, a similarity statement can be written: FGHJ ~ KLMN. Now let's try one! Trapezoid ABCD is similar to trapezoid PQRS. List all the pairs of congruent angles, and write the ratios of the corresponding sides in a statement of proportionality.

3 Click on the tabs to see how to complete this problem. Similarity Proofs AA Similarity Theorem If all angles of one triangle are congruent to all angles of another, then the triangles are similar. ABC DEF SSS Similarity Theorem If all 3 sets of corresponding sides of 2 triangles are proportional, then the triangles are similar. To see if these two triangles are similar, we will set up a proportionality statement between the sides and see if they have the same scale factor. This shows us that the sides are proportional and the scale factor is. SAS Similarity Theorem If two pairs of corresponding sides are proportional and the angles between them are congruent, then the triangles are similar.

4 In the above diagram, <ABC <DEF because the two angles are vertical angles. We know that vertical angles are congruent. Since we know that the two triangles have one pair of congruent angles, let's write a proportionality statement to see if the sides are proportional. From the proportionality statement we see that the 2 pairs of sides adjacent to the congruent angles are proportional. This shows that ABC DEF by SAS similarity postulate and that the scale factor is. Right Triangles A right triangle can be divided into two right triangles. If the altitude (height) of a right triangle is drawn, then the two triangles formed are similar to the original triangle and to each other. Example 1 The following diagram has three similar right triangles. Do you see them? Roll over the image below to see all three similar triangles.

5 CBD ~ ABC ACD ~ ABC CBD ~ ACD Example 2 A ramp has a cross section that is a right triangle. The diagram shows the appropriate dimensions of the cross section. Find the height h of the ramp. In this problem, we know that the triangles are similar since the three triangles are created by the altitude of a right triangle. In order to find the missing value, h, we need to set up a proportion. Use the chart to help you set up the proportion. Once we fill the table in with the information that we know, we can look to see what sides we can compare in a ratio. Notice that we can compare the short leg and the hypotenuse of the big and medium triangles. Shadow Math Assignment Complete the Shadow Math Task found in the tool bar. Submit your completed assignment. Similarity Discussion Why does the AA similarity Theorem only need to identify the measurement of 2 congruent angles? Why is it not necessary to find the measurement of the third angle and show that it is also congruent to the corresponding third angle of a similar triangle? Post your answer to this discussion. Transformations and Similarity Proofs Quiz It is now time to complete the "Transformations and Similarity Proofs" quiz. You will have a limited amount of time to complete your quiz; please plan accordingly.

6 Congruence Watch this video to see the difference between similar and congruent triangles. In order for triangles to be congruent they must have the congruent corresponding sides. All of the corresponding sides and angles must have the same measurements. In two congruent figures, all the parts of one figure are congruent to the corresponding parts of the other figure. (Corresponding means the sides or angles that are in the same positions if you were to align the triangles the same way.) There are three congruence postulates that can be used to prove that triangles are congruent. Side Side Side (SSS) Congruence Postulate Side Angle Side (SAS) Congruence Postulate Angle Side Angle (ASA) Congruenc Postulate If three sides of one triangle are congruent to three sides of a second triangle, then the two triangles are congruent. If two sides and the included angle of one triangle are congruent to two sides and the included angle of If two angles and the included side of one tria a second triangle, then the two triangles are are congruent to two angles and the includ congruent. side of a second triangle, then the two triang are congruent. Example 1 Roll over the image below for further explanation: From your exploration above, you should have found the following:, given by hash mark on picture, given by hash mark on picture, congruent to itself. Also known as the reflexive property. Example 2 Use the diagram to name the included angle between the given pair of sides. The included angle is the angle that is created by the two given sides.

7 Example 3 State the third congruence that must be given to prove using the indicated postulate. To complete this problem, mark the given statements on your diagram and look to see what is missing. Since we have to use SAS Congruence Postulate, we can see that we need the included angle between the given congruent sides. This shows us that the missing congruence is < J < D. Example 4 In addition to the three congruence postulates, there are two theorems that can be used to determine whether two triangles are congruent. Recall that in a right triangle, the sides adjacent to the right angle are called the legs. The side opposite the right angle is called the hypotenuse of the right triangle. The Hypotenuse Leg Congruence Theorem can be used to prove triangles congruent. Hypotenuse Leg (HL) Congruence Theorem: If the hypotenuse and a leg of a right triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and a leg of a second right triangle, then the two triangles are congruent. Triangles ABC and DEF are congruent by the HL Theorem. Example 5 Is enough information given to prove that the triangles ABC and DCB are congruent? If so, which postulate or theorem is used?

8 ANSWER : Yes, the two triangles are congruent by the HL Congruence Theorem. The other theorem that can be used to tell prove triangles congruent is the Angle Angle Side Congruence Theorem. Angle Angle Side (AAS) Congruence Theorem : If two angles and a non included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the corresponding non included side of a second triangle, then the two triangles are congruent. Triangles ABC and DEF are congruent by the AAS Theorem. Example 6 Using the AAS Congruence Theorem and the given information, state the third congruence that is needed to prove that triangles ABC and DEF are congruent. Given: A D, B E,? Self Check : What postulate or theorem can used to prove that triangle ABF is congruent to triangle CBD? AAS, HL, SSS, or SSA? SOLUTION Watch the video showcase below to learn more about congurence. Prove Geometric Theorems A proof is a logical argument that shows a statement is true. One common proof that we will use is a two column proof. A two column proof has numbered statements and corresponding reasons that show an argument in logical order. Since we have learned some basics about congruence in our previous lesson, we can use that to begin writing proofs. Watch this video to see an example of proving two triangles congruent. We can also prove congruence with other polygons and shapes, for example, line segments. When we begin doing proofs in our next lesson, you will need to use line statements about lines and angles. Remember that a line segment is a portion of a line with two endpoints.

9 An angle is made up of two line segments, rays, or lines. Recall that a theorem is a statement that can be proven and a postulate is a rule that is accepted without proof. We will use both of these terms to justify answers. Example 1 How would we find the length from A to B? If = 16, what is the value of x? To find x, we will use the Segment Addition Postulate. Segment Addition Postulate: If B is between A and C, then AB + BC = AC. If AB + BC = AC, then B is between A and C. This means that x + 10 = 16, x = 6. Example 2 The angle addition postulate may be used for some problems. Angle Addition Postulate: If P is in the interior of <RST, then the measure of <RST is equal to the sum of the measures of <RSP and <PST. Properties of Congruence There are three common properties that can be used when showing congruence. Here are examples of each one. Sometimes we use substitution: Substitution: Replacing something with another of equal value. If x = 2y + 3 and = 2y + 3, then x =.

10 Watch the video showcase below to learn more about proving geometric theorems. Using coordinates to Prove Geometry Theorems Algebraically Now that we know how to prove triangles congruent we can use the coordinate plane to help us complete algebraic proofs. There are a few things you want to remember before working in the coordinate plane: Distance Formula : To find the distance between two points use the distance formula. This can help us determine whether figures have congruent sides. The distance between points (x 1, y 1 ) and (x 2, y 2 ) is: Slope Formula : The slope of a line can help us determine if sides of a shape are parallel or perpendicular. The slope between points (x 1, y 1 ) and (x 2, y 2 ) is: Parallel lines have the same slope and perpendicular lines have opposite (negative reciprocal slopes). Example Use coordinates to determine if the triangles ABC and DEF are congruent. A(1, 1) B(4,0) C(7, 5) D(4, 5) E(6, 6) F(9, 1) Answer First, let's plot the points and see what the triangles look like. We can then use the distance formula to see if the triangles have equal corresponding sides. Distance of side AB: Distance of side BC: Distance of side CA:

11 Distance of side DE: Distance of side EF: Distance of side FD: AB DE, BC = EF, and CA FD, therefore the two triangles are not congruent by SSS Congruence Postulate. Angle Pair Relationships Reminder! Alternate Interior Angles Angles within two lines but are on opposite sides of a transversal. Complementary Angles Two angles whose sum is 90. Supplementary Angles Two angles whose sum is 180. Adjacent Angles Two angles that share a common vertex and side, but have no common interior points. Linear Pair Two adjacent angles are a linear pair if their noncommon sides are opposite rays. Linear Pair Postulate If two angles form a linear pair, then they are supplementary. Vertical Angles Right Angles

12 Congruence Theorem Congruence Theorem Congruent Supplements Theorem Congruent Complements Theorem Vertical angles are congruent. All right angles are congruent. If two angles are supplementary to the same angle (or to congruent angles) then they are congruent. If two angles are complementary to the same angle (or to congruent angles), then they are congruent. Example 1 Use the diagram to find the missing angles. If m < 3 = 112, find m < 1, m < 2 and m < 4. (m represents measure) m < 1 = m < 3 = 112 by Vertical Angles Congruence Theorem. m < 2 = = 68 by Linear Pair Postulate. m < 4 = m < 2 = 68 by Vertical Angles Congruence Theorem.

Geometric Constructions It is possible to make accurate constructions of geometric figures. We must use certain tools to be sure that our constructions are accurate.

Constructing Perpendicular Lines Run the simulation below and then practice to see what you learned. Constructing a Line Parallel to a Given Line Run the simulation below and then practice to see what you learned. Constructing Inscribed Polygons Inscribed polygons are polygons that are inside circles. They are called inscribed because the vertices of the polygons are on the edge of the circle. The picture shows an equilateral triangle (solid lines) and a regular hexagon (dashed lines) inscribed in a circle. Both of these polygons can actually be constructed by you! Notice the dashed lines around the circle. There are 6 of them. Each of these lines is the length of the radius of the circle. A radius of a circle can fit six times around a circle as shown. When this is done, it creates an inscribed regular hexagon. Notice, if you connect every other vertex of the hexagon (the solid lines) it creates an inscribed equilateral triangle. You can try these constructions on your own paper. An inscribed square can be constructed fairly simply as well. Take a look at the diagram below: Notice that the vertices of the squares are the endpoints of the circles diameters. If you create perpendicular diameters in a circle and then connect the endpoints, you will have an inscribed square. Some video content is reproduced by permission from Math Open Reference.
