A comparison of two quantities, also know as fancy word for fraction.
An equation that states that two ratios are equal.
the first and last numbers in a proportion
the middle two numbers in a proportion
compares three or more numbers
Cross Products Property
in a proportion, the product of the extremes equals the product of the means
Figures that have the same shape, but not necessarily the same size.
Side-Angle-Side Similarity (SAS∼)
two triangles are said to be similar when two pairs of side lengths are proportional and the included angles are congruent
the square root of the product of the extremes or means
Properties of Proportions
If a ÷ b = c ÷ d, then b ÷ a = d ÷ c;
the ratio of corresponding linear measurements of two similar figures
when three or more ratios are equal
Angle-Angle Similarity (AA∼)
If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle, then the triangles are similar.
Side-Side-Side Similarity (SSS∼)
If the corresponding sides of two triangles are proportional, then the triangles are similar.
methods of determining lengths that are difficult to measure
The Altitude of a Right Triangle Theorem
The altitude to the hypotenuse of a right triangle divides the triangle into two triangles that are similar to the original triangle and to each other.
Corollary 1 to the Altitude of a Right Triangle Theorem
The length of the altitude to the hypotenuse of a right triangle is the geometric mean of the lengths of the segments of the hypotenuse.
If a line is parallel to one side of a triangle and intersects the other two sides, then it divides those sides proportionally.
Corollary to the Side-Splitter Theorem
If three parallel lines intersect two transversals, then the segments intercepted on the transversals are proportional.
If a ray bisects an angle of a triangle, then it divides the opposite side into two segments that are proportional to the other two sides of the triangle.
figures that have the same shape but not necessarily the same size; corresponding angles are congruent, but not necessarily corresponding sides
A plane figure with the same size and shape.
a transformation that changes the size of an object, but not the shape
the original figure BEFORE a transformation is performed on it
the resulting figure AFTER a transformation is performed on it
dilation whose image is larger than its preimage; |r| > 1
dilation whose image is smaller than its preimage;
