Similar figures, in Mathematics, means that a shape has been enlarged or reduced by a scale factor. The new shape will have sides which are a ratio of the original sides. This videos takes a look at similar figures and how we can find the ratio of the sides and use this ratio to find missing side lengths. The theory is awesome and leads into some great questions which highlight how to put the theory into practice. All exams are solved using a CAS calculator.
