AA similarity shows that a triangle is similar when two angles of one triangle are congruent to two corresponding angles of another triangle. When this happens it makes the corresponding sides proportional. When the sides are proportional you can use proportions to find the missing side. The two angles are located at the person, flag pole, and on either side of the mirror.The mirror provides congruent angles because the angle of reflection is congruent.
