#### What are Similar Figures?

Looking at two figures that are the same shape and have the same angle measurements? You have similar figures! Learn all about it in this tutorial!

#### What's the Direct Variation or Direct Proportionality Formula?

Ever heard of two things being directly proportional? Well, a good example is speed and distance. The bigger your speed, the farther you'll go over a given time period. So as one variable goes up, the other goes up too, and that's the idea of direct proportionality. But you can express direct proportionality using equations, and that's an important thing to do in algebra. See how to do that in the tutorial!
