Step 1
Given,
The triangle JKA with JA = 18. AK=24 and \(\displaystyle\angle{A}={42}^{{\circ}}\)
The triangle WSY with WS = 12. SY=16 and \(\displaystyle\angle{S}={42}^{{\circ}}\)
We have to find the similarity between the triangles.
Step 2
In \(\displaystyle\triangle{J}{A}{K}\ {\quad\text{and}\quad}\ \triangle{W}{S}{Y}\)
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{J}{A}}}{{{W}{S}}}}={\frac{{{18}}}{{{12}}}}={\frac{{{3}}}{{{2}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{A}{k}}}{{{S}{Y}}}}={\frac{{{24}}}{{{16}}}}={\frac{{{3}}}{{{2}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle\angle{A}=\angle{S}={42}^{{\circ}}\)
So,
By SAS(side-angle-side) rule of similarity
\(\displaystyle\triangle{J}{A}{K}\sim\triangle{W}{S}{Y}\)
