# In right triangle A B C ,   C D - is the altitude from C to hypotenuse A B - . Name three triangles that are similar to each other. ___________ To determine

To find:

The triangles that is similar to each other.

Explanation

Given,

A right triangle ABC, CD¯ is the altitude from C to hypotenuse AB¯.

Here, the altitude cd¯ is drawn to the hypotenuse of a right triangle ABC that separates the right triangle into two right triangles as ADC,CDB

Therefore, we have the smaller triangles as follows,

Consider the ABC,ACD

Here, AA

BC

CD

AAA Theorem:

If the three angles of one triangle are congruent to the three angles of a second triangle then the triangles are similar.

Therefore by the above theorem

ABC~ACD

Consider the ABC,CBD
