Formula used:
The ratio of sides is same for similar triangles
Calculation:
We know that in similar triangles HFE and HGF,
HFHG=FEGF=HEHF(by law of similarity)
Hence, we substitute the value of EH and HG in the equation above , we get
HF2=HE(HG)
Thus, we get
HF=21

Can the triangles below be proven similar by the SSS Similarity Postulate? Explain.

1)No, the SSS Similarity Postulate cannot be used to prove the two triangles are similar. To use the SSS Similarity Postulate, all three corresponding sides must be known to be proportional.
2)Yes, the SSS similarity Postulate can be used to prove the two triangles are similar. The triangles have one set of congruent corresponding angles, so the SSS Similarity Postulate can be used.
3)No, the SSS Similarity Postulate cannot be used to prove the two triangles are similar. To use the SSS similarity Postulate, all three corresponding angles must be known to be congruent.
4)No, the SSS Similarity Postulate cannot be used to prove the two triangles are similar. To use the SSS Similarity Postulate, all three corresponding sides must be known to be congruent.
