### Example Question #1 : Similarity Transformations Given Two Figures: Ccss.Math.Content.Hsg Srt.A.2

Which of the other triangles is similar to ?

None of the above

Explanation:

The correct image is as follows.

This is the correct answer because it has similar angles, and if we do some simple math, we can figure out what the missing angle is in the original picture.

Looking at the original picture,

the two known angles can be added together. Recall all interior angles of a triangle have a sum of 180.

Now solve for B, to figure out what the missing angle is.

Now if we look at the missing angle in the picture, it has the same angles.

The other pictures don't have similar answers.
