Symmetry and Similarity

Solutions

Practice 1

  1. H, O, E, C
  2. Z, S, H, O, N

Practice 2

Both are rectangles, so all the angles are equal. You need to determine if the corresponding sides are in proportion. If ABCD and EFGH are similar, then will equal . AD = 4 and EH = 8. So is , or . CD = 6 and GH = 12. So is , or . These rectangles are similar.
