similarity and congruence
Tonight’s talk: Similarity and Congruence
I’m worried about you. You seem neurotic, always
concerned about being a size zero, or seven, or
whatever. You need to relax more.
I just think if you stopped worrying so much about
size and focused on proportionality you’d have more
opportunities. I get used all the time—my flexibility
is a real asset.
Faster? How? I’m pretty fast, you know!
True. And I’m a big stickler for efficiency. People
would do well to use both of us more!
Oh, tell me about it! I think they forget that we’re
not all about the triangles. And that we travel so
But size DOES matter. It’s all very well having your
angles right on paper, but if something is too big or
too small, in the real world size actually matters.
And potentially a real headache! Sometimes it
doesn’t cut it just being similar—and that’s where
I come in, when you need to rely on size as well as
shape. Plus, I’m faster to use.
Yeah, you’re quick, but even if something’s similar,
if it’s not congruent, then you’ve gotta do some
math for the lengths. OK, it’s only multiplication
and division, but it all takes time.
Yes. Are you getting much non-triangle work these
days? I’m mostly getting triangle stuff still, and it’s
not that I don’t like it…but you know, I have so
much more potential.
Completely—I love to travel! You can flip me
upside down, back to front, spin me around and
move me from one place to another, and I still work
just as well.
Great to catch up! I’ll let you know if I get any work
you could help out with.
