Calculation:
Consider two triangles WXV and ZXY as shown as in the textbook.
WXV=ZXY
They are vertically opposite angles
Compare the corresponding sides, WXZX=1015=23
Compare the corresponding sides, VXYX=1218=23
Thus,
WXZX=VXYX
23=23
According to the SAS similarity theorem:
Therefore,
WXVZXY
Hence, WXVZXY are similar with each other by the SAS similarity theorem
