Find Missing Sides and Angles of Similar Triangles
Videos, worksheets, and solutions to help Grade 8
students learn how to find missing sides and angles of similar triangles.
Similar triangles are triangles that have exactly the same shape, but are not necessarily the same size. When two triangles are similar, the ratios of the lengths of their corresponding sides are equal. We can use these properties of similar triangles to find missing sides and angles.
