    Similar Triangles

    In the statements vs reasons chart, what is actually needed to prove that two triangles are similar?

    Another broad question. Depending on the "Given", these are the ways one may prove similarity of triangles:

    (1) SSS~

    (2) SAS~

    (3) AA~

    I'll leave you to look up the wording for these theorems.
