Step 1
Given two triangles are :

Step 2
GHI,
GH=42, HI=17, IG=48
LMN,
LM=21, MN=10, NL=30
Step 3
We know that if two triangles are similar then their sides are in equal ratio.
if GHI and LMN are similar then,
GHLM=HIMN=GILN
Here,
GHLM=4221=2
HIMN=1710=1.7
GILN=4830=1.6,
That means, GHLMqHIMNqGILN
Hence given two triangles are not similar, GHInLMN
Answer : These triangles are not similar.
