Define what it means for polygons to be "similar"or "congruent"by thinking about photocopies. Then use that to prove the third key assumption of geometry—the side-angle-side postulate—which lets you verify when triangles are similar. Thales of Ionia used this principle in 600 B.C.E. to impress the Egyptians by calculating the height of the pyramids.
