Calculation:
SAS theorem for similarity states that the ratios of two sides of one triangle to the corresponding triangle’s two side must be equal. Angle between equal ratios sides of both the triangle must be equal.
In triangle RST and XYZ,
R=X (Given)
Ratios of the sides with end R and X must be equal.
Consider the ratios of sides as follows:
RSXY=RTXZ
Hence, theratios of RSXYandRTXZ must be equal to prove RSTXYZ by SAS similarity theorem.
