What are Corresponding Angles of Triangles? We know what similar figures are now, don't we? If you don't remember, we'll take a quick review. When two figures are exactly the same, with similar measurements and equal angles, ratios, they are known as similar figures. Let us take an example. When you draw two triangles with the exact measurements, they will have similar ratios and angles as well. Now, look at the corresponding sides of the triangle. The angles that they form are perfectly similar, and this set of angles is known as "The corresponding angle." Regardless of how rotated the triangles are, whenever their sides match, their matching corners will form angles, and they are known as corresponding angles. Corresponding angles are also formed in the matching corners of other different shapes. Squares, rectangles, and more, corresponding angles are formed in every shape! (NB) 166. What are Scale Factors? These worksheets show students how to locate and use corresponding angles to your advantage when you have two similar triangles.
