Hi,

I have two figures in a graph and i have to prove that the figures are similar.They both look the same but one of them is smaller.I know that in order to prove that this two figueres are similar the angles must be congruent so i am using the slope formula to prove that they are similar.

My question is Does every slope of corresponding sides have to be equal in order for two figures to be similar?

YES (!!), theCORRESPONDINGangles (an equivalent for the slope)MUSTbe equal ... as long as any pairing of angles from one triangle to that of another triangle, without duplication, provides equivalency, the triangles are similar.
