(AA~, SSS~, SAS~)

Similar Triangles

Two triangles are similar if they are the same shape. That means the vertices can be paired up so the angles are congruent. Size does not matter.

AA Similarity (Angle-Angle or AA~)

A D B E

If 2 angles of one triangle are congruent to 2 angles of another triangle, then the triangles are similar.
