Task 3 – Connecting Vertices of Similar Triangles

Shown in the applet below are $latex \triangle EFG$ and $latex RST$.


1.) Are the two triangles similar? Why?

2.) Use the Line tool to connect the corresponding vertices of the two triangles. What do you observe about the lines?

3.) Draw another triangle that is similar to $latex \triangle EFG$  and name it $latex \triangle HJI$. Connect their corresponding vertices. Did your observation in 2 also hold?
