2. Segment FH over segment FI equals segment HG over segment IE
If triangles EFI and GFH are similar then, the statement
The triangles EFI and GFH are similar. So, their corresponding angles are congruent and the corresponding sides are in proportion.
EF corresponds to GF
FI corresponds to FH
IE corresponds to HG
Using properties of similarity of triangle, we can say;
FI/FH = IE/HG
which is the same as
FH/FI = HG/IE
Basically, the corresponding sides create equal ratios to form this proportion.
