# how to figure out if 2 figures are similar

### by cameron nash

To find out if 2 figures are similar, you have to figure out if the figure has equal angles. If the figure doesn't have the same angle measures then the figure is automatically not similar. After you figure that out that out than figure out what types of transformations are used. Transformation are all the types of moves that a figure can make for it to be similar. Another way you can figure out if they are similar you could take a line from the original figure and put it over the same line of the second figure. Make it equal the measurement of the original image over the new image. Reduce if you can. Then do the same with the other sides. If they all equal the same then they a re similar.
