 Question 409205: Hello, We are learning about similar triangles. Here is the question: If MNPQ is a parallelogram, find RN, RP, and SP. The answer the book says is that the triangles QSM~PSR~NMR are similar b/c of the Angle Angle Similarity rule (RN=33.3, RP=13.3, SP=20). Which 2 angles are similar? Thanks.
