You can determine values that you can't directly measure.
 
E.g., on a sunny day you can measure the length of your shadow and a tree's shadow.
 
You can also measure your height; but you can't directly measure the tree's height (easily).
 
Using similar triangles whose sides are proportional you can calculate the height of the tree.
