# CORRESPONDING PARTS OF SIMILAR FIGURES

Problem 1 :

Some special effects in movie are created using miniature models. In a recent movie, a model sports utility (SUV) 22 inches long was created to look like a real 14  2/3 foot SUV. What is the scale factor of the model compared to the real SUV ?

Solution

Problem 2 :

The two polygons are similar, write similarity statement and find x, y and UT. Solution

Problem 3 :

Each pair of polygons is similar. Write a similarity statement, find x and measures of indicated sides and scale factor. Solution

Problem 4 :

Each pair of polygons is similar. Write a similarity statement, find x and measures of indicated sides and scale factor. Find the lengths of FE, EH and GF. Solution

Each pair of polygons is similar. Write a similarity statement, find x and measures of indicated sides and scale factor.

Problem 5 :

Find the lengths of AB and CD. Solution

Problem 6 :

Find AC and CE. Solution

Problem 7 :

Find BC and ED. Solution

1) the model is 1/8 of the real.

2)  x = 13.5, y = 20.5, UT = 22.5

3) x = 14, scale factor is 3 : 2.

4)  x = 23,  the scale factor is 1/2, FE = 28, EH = 20, GF = 32

5)  AB = 16/3, CD = 10/3

6)  AC = 7.6, CE = 11.4

7)  x = 0.6, AC = 7.6, CE = 11.4
