If so, state how you know they are similar and complete the similarity statement.

First one

take the ratio of the long sides of each triangle   66/55  = 1.2

take the ratio of the NEXT longest legs             60/50 = 1.2     Good so far

IF the ratio of the third legs is the same (1.2), the triangles are similar

55/45 = 1.2222    Uh-Oh......    the triangle are NOT similar (Close though)

Second one

can you tell me for what the little red arrows stand ?

IF the little red arrows mean the lines are 'slanted' the same, then you would have similar triangles because all three angles in each are the same
