If I have two right angle triangles and two unknown side lengths which I have not yet as apart of the question been asked to calculate or find, but have been asked to show that the two triangles are similar, would somebody please advise what the question means by SHOW.
Thanks

I have not been given home work on it. Reading the course book does give advise about similar triangles, it explains about the angles being equal which I understand, and it talks about the sides being in proportion to each other, which I understand, then it goes on to show some algebra to proves the lenghts of the sides are in proportion, which I also understand, what I did'nt understand was the explanation of show?
Show by drawing it, show by mathematically working out, show by explanation?
Sometimes questions are not very well worded, which is why I asked for professional second opinions?
Thanks
