Triangle Similarity Theorems Activity: Fix it Felix!
- Klyde Erm P. Urbiztondo
You will use triangle similarity theorems to accomplish your task.
Task # 1
Which among the three parts is similar to the triangle on the left?
Which tool are you going to use to fix this part? Explain how this theorem is applicable in this problem.
What did you consider to make the bolts similar to the main bolt? What are the measurements of the sides opposite to the angles highlighted in green after adjusting the bolts?
Which tool did you use to fix the problem? What did you observe after manipulating the parts?
Observe all the triangles and compare the brake lights with the slot by dragging it over the slot. What can be inferred about measure angle X, Y, and Z? What can be inferred about their adjacent sides? Using this reasoning, which brake lights are similar to the slot?
Which tool did you use in solving this problem? How did this theorem apply on this specific problem?
