P.12 Similar and Congruent Figures

By:Perla ramirez

To figure out if the shapes are similar you have to look very carefully at the angles to see if they are alike.

First, you have to look at the shapes to see if there alike and if you can't figure if the shapes are alike then you could look at the edges. Like in this picture the edges are not alike so in that case the shapes are not similar.

The first thing you have to do to see if the shape is congruent it to check if the shapes are similar. If the shapes are similar then you just have to check the size. For congruent the size does matter because if one shape is to small and the other one is too big then those shapes are similar but they are not congruent.

The shapes are congruent if both the shapes have the same length and size.
