One figure is **similar** to another if there is a sequence of rigid motions and dilations that takes the first figure so that it fits exactly over the second.
Translation and dilation takes triangle ABC onto triangle FDE so:
triangle ABC ~ triangle FDE
(we read ~ as “is similar to”)
Are the triangles below **similar**?

Write a sequence of transformations (translation, rotation, reflection, dilation) to take one triangle to the other.

Write a similarity statement about the 2 figures, and explain how you know they are similar.
