# Name the method (AA, SSS˜, or SAS˜) that is used to show that the triangles are simiar.Use the figure below. a) W U = 2 ⋅ T R , W V = 2 ⋅ T S ,       and       U V = 2 ⋅ R S   b) ∠ T ≅ ∠ W     and       ∠ S ≅ ∠ V c) ∠ T ≅ ∠ W       a n d     T R W U = T S W V d)     T R W U = T S W V = R S U V

To determine

a)

To name:

Method used to show the triangles are similar.

Explanation

Given:

WU=2â‹…TR,WV=2â‹…TSÂ andÂ UV=2â‹…RSâ€‰

Calculation:

From the triangle, Î”TRSÂ andÂ Î”WUV

The length of WU=2â‹…TR,WV=2â‹…TSÂ andÂ UV=2â‹…RSâ€‰

That is,

To determine

b)

To name:

Method used to show the triangles are similar.

To determine

c)

To name:

Method used to show the triangles are similar.

To determine

d)
