# What is a word for something similar but different?

## What is a word for something similar but different?

A homonym is a word that is said or spelled the same way as another word but has a different meaning. “Write” and “right” is a good example of a pair of homonyms.

## What is difference between similar and same?

Same means that two (or more) things are identical. For instance, a person might have two identical plastic cups or three pairs of ankle-cut socks by the same company and in the same color. Similar means that two (or more) things are nearly identical but not quite.

**How do you say two things are not similar?**

other words for not similar

- antithetical.
- contradictory.
- disparate.
- divergent.
- diverse.
- offbeat.
- different.
- unlike.

### Why are similar triangles similar?

Two triangles are said to be similar if their corresponding angles are congruent and the corresponding sides are in proportion . In other words, similar triangles are the same shape, but not necessarily the same size.

### How do you know if two parallelograms are similar?

A parallelogram has adjacent sides with the lengths of and . Find a pair of possible adjacent side lengths for a similar parallelogram. Explanation: Since the two parallelogram are similar, each of the corresponding sides must have the same ratio.

**Is AA a theorem?**

The AA Similarity Theorem states: If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle, then the triangles are similar.

#### How do you know if a pair of polygons are similar?

Two polygons are similar if their corresponding angles are congruent and the corresponding sides have a constant ratio (in other words, if they are proportional). Typically, problems with similar polygons ask for missing sides. To solve for a missing length, find two corresponding sides whose lengths are known.

#### Which two triangles could you prove similar by AA?

AA stands for “angle, angle” and means that the triangles have two of their angles equal. If two triangles have two of their angles equal, the triangles are similar.

**How do you know if two trapezoids are similar?**

In order for two trapezoids to be similar their corresponding sides must have the same ratio. Since the largest base length in the image is and the corresponding side is , the other base must also be times greater than the corresponding side shown in the image.

## What is AAA similarity theorem?

AAA Similarity Statement: If in two triangles, the corresponding angles are equal, i.e., if the two triangles are equiangular, then the triangles are similar. Given : Triangles ABC and DEF such that ∠A = ∠D; ∠B = ∠E; ∠C = ∠F.

## Are the triangles similar by AAA similarity?

Definition: Triangles are similar if the measure of all three interior angles in one triangle are the same as the corresponding angles in the other. This (AAA) is one of the three ways to test that two triangles are similar . And so, because all three corresponding angles are equal, the triangles are similar.

**What is AAA criterion Theorem?**

If in two triangles, corresponding angles are equal, then their corresponding sides are in the same ratio and hence the two triangles are similar. We can prove this theorem by taking two triangles ABC and DEF.

### Is AAA a congruence theorem?

Four shortcuts allow students to know two triangles must be congruent: SSS, SAS, ASA, and AAS. Knowing only angle-angle-angle (AAA) does not work because it can produce similar but not congruent triangles.

### How do you prove AAA?

AAA Similarity

- Statement: If in two triangles, the corresponding angles are equal, i.e., if the two triangles are equiangular, then the triangles are similar.
- Given : Triangles ABC and DEF such that ∠A = ∠D; ∠B = ∠E; ∠C = ∠F.
- Prove that : Δ ABC ~ ΔDEF.

**Why is our similarity postulate called AA instead of AAA?**

In short, equi-angular triangles are similar. Ideally, the name of this criterion should then be the AAA(Angle-Angle-Angle) criterion, but we call it as AA criterion because we need only two pairs of angles to be equal – the third pair will then automatically be equal by angle sum property of triangles.

#### What are the 3 similarity postulates?

These are postulates or the rules used to check for similar triangles. There are three rules for checking similar triangles: AA rule, SAS rule, or SSS rule. Angle-Angle (AA) rule: With the AA rule, two triangles are said to be similar if two angles in one particular triangle are equal to two angles of another triangle.

#### What are the 3 theorems that prove triangles are similar?

These three theorems, known as Angle – Angle (AA), Side – Angle – Side (SAS), and Side – Side – Side (SSS), are foolproof methods for determining similarity in triangles.

**How do you prove SSS triangles are similar?**

You can prove that triangles are similar using the SSS~ (Side-Side-Side) method. SSS~ states that if the ratios of the three pairs of corresponding sides of two triangles are equal, then the triangles are similar.

## Are the two triangles similar how do you know 53 60?

Answer: Yes the triangles are similar.

## What is the similarity theorem?

In Euclidean geometry: Similarity of triangles. The fundamental theorem of similarity states that a line segment splits two sides of a triangle into proportional segments if and only if the segment is parallel to the triangle’s third side.

**What does it mean if two rectangles are similar?**

For two rectangles to be similar, their sides have to be proportional (form equal ratios). The ratio of the two longer sides should equal the ratio of the two shorter sides.

### Are two rectangles always similar?

No they are not; rectangles are only similar if there is a consistent ratio between all sides. An example of two rectangles that are similar would be a rectangle with dimensions of 2 x 7 and another one with dimensions of 4 x 14.

### What triangle are always similar?

equilateral triangles

**Are all rectangles similar shape?**

Are all rectangles similar? No, all rectangles are not similar rectangles. The ratio of the corresponding adjacent sides may be different.

#### Are all squares similar True or false?

All squares are similar. The size of every square may not be the same or equal but the ratios of their corresponding sides or the corresponding parts are always equal. All the angles of each square are 90 degrees.
