What is the definition of corresponding sides?

n. in congruent polygons, the pairs of sides which can be superimposed on one another. In similar polygons, the ratio of the length of a side on the larger polygon to the length of its corresponding side on the smaller polygon is the same for all the sides.

How can yo find the scale factor from one polygon to the other of two similar polygons?

cont the angle then multiply by 77

If to polygons are similar how can you find the scale factor?

You divide a length of one polygon by the corresponding length in the other polygon. Any length will do, as long as you use the corresponding length in both.

What is the greatest common factor of a polygon?

One factor that polygons have is the scale factor which is the ratio of the lengths of two corresponding sides of similar polygons. This would only pertain to two or more polygons of course. You could also look at a single polygon and find the GCF of the lengths of its sides. So for example if you have a 3,4,5 triangle, the GCF is 1. If you have a 6,8,10 triangle it is 2.
