#### Worksheet Overview

Similar shapes have matching corresponding angles and corresponding sides which are in the same ratio.

In these two triangles the angles match and you will notice that the second triangle has sides which are double in length of the sides of the first triangle.

We can use fractions to write some of these ratios:

3  =  6

7     14

or

3  =  7

6     14
