Objective: To identify similar figures and find missing lengths of similar figures & polygons using proportions.
Similar figures are the same exact shape but do not have to be the same size. (Similar figures may be the same size, in fact, if they are the same size, they are also congruent.)
Similar polygons have CONGRUENT angles. The corresponding sides will be proportional.
