Why can the AA Similar Theorem be used?
AA Similarity states that if two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another, then the triangles are similar. A person standing erect creates a right angle while the flag pole, secured perpendicularly to the ground, also creates a right angle; these two right angles are congruent. The angle formed by the person's line of vision, from his or her eyes to the mirror, is reflected at the exact same angle size in the opposite direction making these two angles congruent. According to the AA Similarity Theorem, these two triangles are congruent.
