# Triangle similarity review

Review the triangle similarity criteria and use them to determine similar triangles.

## What are the triangle similarity criteria?

AA | Two pairs of corresponding angles are equal | |

SSS | Three pairs of corresponding sides are proportional | |

SAS | Two pairs of corresponding sides are proportional and the corresponding angles between them are equal |

- i dont get most of this stuff(17 votes)
- Try to practice upon it and you might get it, or just use khan academy's practice a lot. Hope it helps(14 votes)

- How can you tell the difference between SAS and SSA? (Assume you had a problem and had to chose if it was sim. because of SAS or SSA, how would you figure it out?)(8 votes)
- SAS means that the angle is in between the two sides in question. SSA means the angle is not in between.(13 votes)

- The videos im watching is not adding up to the working you guys are giving me. Im so lost.(6 votes)
- An equation is a statement with an equals sign.

So*3 + 5 = 8*and*5x + 12 = (x / 4) + 3*are both equations,

but*24 * 9*and*3y ≥ x - 8*are not equations.(8 votes)

- gelp im in 8 doing this while other people are doing calculus rn :sob:(2 votes)
- why does this make sense(4 votes)
- Because it just does.(0 votes)
