I WANT HOW TO KNOW ABOUT WHICH TEST OF SIMILARITY IS APPLICABLE FOR SOMES I M CONFUSED IN TEST OF SIMILARITY

Answer:
SSS similarity criterion:
The triangles shown are similar as their corresponding sides are proportional.
Example:
So, when begin mathsize 8px style AB over XY equals BC over YZ equals AC over XZ end style that is the sides are proportional, then the triangles ABC and XYZ are similar.
 
 
SAS similarity criterion:
The triangles shown are similar as their corresponding angle is congruent and the sides including this angle are proportional.
Example:
So, when two sides are given proportiional and the included angle between those sides are given equal, then the triangles are proportional, and we can use the SAS similarity criterion in this case.
 
AAA similarity criterion:
The triangles shown are similar as the corresponding angles of one triangle are equal to the corresponding angles of the other triangle.
Example:
 
So, when angle straight A equals angle straight D comma space angle straight B equals angle straight E comma space straight C equals angle straight F comma space then space the space triangles space are space similar.
 
 
 
AA similarity criterion:
The triangles shown are similar as TWO of the corresponding angles of one triangle are equal to the TWO corresponding angles of the other triangle.
Example:
 
 
So, in this case two pairs of angles are equal, so, we can use the angle sum property to each triangle and obtain the third angle.
Then we can use the AAA similarity criterion.
 
 
ASA similarity criterion:
The triangles shown are similar as two of the corresponding angles of one triangle are equal to the two corresponding angles of the other triangle and the side included between these angles are equal.
Example:
 
So, in this case two pairs of angles are equal and the included sides are equal.
