Q:
# What similarity statement can you write relating the three triangles in the diagram?A. JMK-MLK-JLMB. JMK-LMK-JLMC. JLM-MLKJKMD. JKM-MKL-MJL - It said D was wrong

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: C. JLM-MLK-JKMStep-by-step explanation:Since, in triangles JLM and MLK,∠JML≅∠MKL (Right angles)∠JLM≅∠KLM (Reflexive)By AA similarity postulate,Triangles JLM and MLK are similar,Similarly, triangles JLM and JKM are similar,Thus, triangles MLK and JKM are also similar to each other,Therefore, Option C is correct.
