#### Question

State which pair of triangles in the following figure are similar? Write the similarity criterion used by you for answering the question and also write the pairs of similar triangles in the symbolic form:

#### Solution 1

The given triangles are not similar as the corresponding sides are not proportional.

#### Solution 2

In ΔABC and ΔDEF, we have

AB = 2.5, BC = 3, ∠A = 80°, EF = 6, DF = 5, ∠F = 80°

Here, AB/DF = 2.5/5 = 1/2

And, BC/EF = 3/6 = 1/2

⇒ ∠B ≠ ∠F

Hence, ΔABC and ΔDEF are not similar.
