ratio of a to b
two quantities measured in the same units; a:b, a/b
an equation that equates two ratios.
Cross Product Property
the product of the extremes equals the product of the means
reciprocal property
if two ratios are equal, their reciprocals are also equal
the letters a and d are the extremes of a proportion a:b=c:d
the numbers b and c are the means of the proportion a:b =c:d
similar polygons
when there is a correspondence between two polygons such that their corresponding angles are congruent and their corresponding sides are proportional
Side -side-side similarity theorem
if the lengths of the corresponding sides of two triangles are proportional, then the triangles are similar.
a transformation that maps every point in a plane to the final image so that the following is true:1. if p is not the center C, then the image point p’ lies on CP. the scale factor k is a positive number such that k=CP’/CP’ and k does not equal 12. if P is the center point C, the P=P’
