Given,
\(\displaystyle\triangle{A}{B}{C}\) with AB=4, BC=6 and CA = 2
\(\displaystyle\triangle{D}{E}{F}\) with DE=2, EF=3 and FD = 1
We have to prove the two triangles are similar.

In \(\displaystyle\triangle{A}{B}{C}\ {\quad\text{and}\quad}\ \triangle{D}{E}{F}\)
Taking the ratio of sides
\(\displaystyle\Rightarrow{\frac{{{A}{B}}}{{{D}{E}}}}={\frac{{{B}{C}}}{{{E}{F}}}}={\frac{{{C}{A}}}{{{F}{D}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle\Rightarrow{\frac{{{4}}}{{{2}}}}={\frac{{{6}}}{{{3}}}}={\frac{{{2}}}{{{1}}}}={2}\)
So,
The ratio of corresponding sides are equal,
Then, from SSS(side-side-side) rule of similarity
\(\displaystyle\triangle{A}{B}{C}\sim\triangle{D}{E}{F}\)
