Determine whether or not the two triangles in each pair below are similar.  If so, create a flowchart to show your reasoning. If not, explain why not.

  1. Segments, A E, & B D, intersect at point C, additional segments from, A to B, & from, D to E, create 2 triangles labeled was follows: side, A B, 27, side, A C, 18, side, B C, 12, side, C E, 8, side, D E, 18, angles, b & e, each have 2 arcs.

    Check to see if the ratios of the corresponding sides are equal.

    Similar. Be sure to create a flowchart.

  1. Segments, V Z, & W Y, intersect at point x, additional segments from, V to W, & from Y to Z, create 2 triangles labeled as follows: side, V W, 4 & 1 arrow, side, W X, 5, Side, V X, 6, side, Z Y, 3 & 1 arrow.

    Parallel lines give special angles. Which angles are these?

    Similar by ~. Be sure to create a flowchart.
