Calculation:
SSS theorem for similarity states that the ratios of sides of one triangle to the corresponding triangle’s sides must be equal.
In triangle RST and XYZ,
Consider the ratios of sides as follows:
RSXY=STYZ=RTXZ
Hence, theratios of RSXY,STYZandRTXZ must be equal to prove RSTXYZ by SSS similarity theorem.
