A little quick question

    For two triangles with the same angels the following applies.

    That the relation between the same sides is equal to the realtion between the other same sides. I hope you do understand it.

    Then my question is does that also apply for the height of the two triangles?

    Hey, once you get angels involved anything can happen!:rolleyes:

    Oh, wait- you mean "angles". Triangles with the same angles are "similar triangles": it follows then that all length's are proportional. That is true not only for the lengths of the sides but all corresponding lengths, such as the height.

    Oops I did of course mean angles. And thank you for your answer.
