So these two triangle shown are similar? Yes. And here's why. So we have, um we've got to parallel lines, and these parallel lines are cut by what we call a trans versatile. So when we have a transfers will cut through two parallel lines, it creates a special angles. We've got vertical angles which are equal. We already know that these two right angles are equal or the same congruent. And so the third angle has to be the same, right? Because all three angles add to be 1 80 Also, the Trans Verceles gives me alternate interior angles, which are congruent, uh, to one another. So yes, these are similar triangles.
