As a rule, similarity problems in Geometry are always encountered with word-based problems and graphs that are implemented in this section. As one may assume, similarities implement logic, which is why similarity questions that you will find must be read more than once to understand why the answers contain specific solutions. It is one of the most interesting sections of Geometry, which is why you should explore the answers posted through the lens of logic. Take your time to explore sequences and variables if there are equations. Likewise, similarity geometry examples will help you to work with more advanced calculations.
