The polygons are said to be similar.

Similar polygons are polygons for which all corresponding angles are congruent and all corresponding sides are proportional. From this definition we can say they have the same shape.

They are similar

Yes and the same angles

If they are the same shape and size

no. similar polygons do not have the same area. similar just means that they have the same angle measurements and are proportional.

They are said to be similar by proportion

The are similar

no, they could be different size but same shape and be similar but not congruent.

Similar polygons have congruent angles and the same shape (but not necessarily the same size). Since the shape of a square and a rectangle is different from the shape of a trapezoid, they are not similar to it.

They are both the same shape but different sizes

Because congruent technicly means the same so that means those polygons are the same. They are different in size but have the same shape.

Congruent polygons.

parallel polygons.

Similar figures are polygons with the same shape but a different size. eg: 5cm square compared to a 10cm square = similar figures. Same shape but different size.

Three sided polygons would be triangles. Triangles that have the same shape (same angle measures) but are different sizes (different side lengths) would be called similar triangles. In similar triangles, corresponding sides have lengths in the same ratio. If triangle ABC is similar to triangle DEF, then: AB/DE = BC/EF = AC/DF.
