Note 4

If you are working in a group, you can divide the tasks in this problem. You may also want to try scaling up Polygons B, F, H, and L.

In this problem, you use the polygons to create similar figures. You may use more than one type of shape to build the similar figures, but you do not have to. Be sure that the figures you create satisfy both of the requirements for similarity -- you may need to measure the sides and angles of the figures to check.

Polygon H, the hexagon, poses a challenge. You can use hexagons, trapezoids, and equilateral triangles to build the similar hexagons in this problem.
