Perfect Pigs in a Blanket
Have you ever made Pigs in a Blanket?
All you need to make Pigs in Blanket are crescent rolls and little smokies. Here's the problem... How am I supposed to cut the triangular piece of dough to properly cover the little smokies?
It's just the worst when the amount or shape of dough doesn't fit perfectly around the little smokies!
I just can't seem to cut congruent triangles out of the dough. Not only are the triangles not congruent, they're not similar at all. They're not even the same type of triangle.
Your goal is to find a way to cut the initial right triangle dough in order to get: 1. The most congruent-like triangles 2. The most similar-like triangles 3. Obtain congruent and similar triangles that make for easy little smoky-wrapping Using the GeoGebra screen below, complete the 3 tasks listed above. Open the following GeoGebra task in the app and prove your thinking by creating and measuring each segment.
