# Similarity and Transformation

### Jennifer Lopez

## What Does it Mean?

When you are figuring out if 2 shape is similar you have to count all of the the boxes on a side and on the other figure the same side to and then simplify all the way when then do that for all of the other sides if the first 2 sides are alike keep on doing the first step and if the firstr 2 are different you have to stop there and say they are not congruent/similar.

- similar:two figures that can be obtained from the first by a sequence of transformation and dilation.
- Dialation: to multiply or divide a coordnate by a number.
