When two shapes are similar it means, although different in sizeof shape but same, have the equal ratio of length for all the corresponding sides.

For example if we have two triangles, the first triangle with sides 2, 4 and 6, the second triangle would be something like 4, 8 and 12. This would be a factor of 2 or ratio of 2, for all the corresponding sides.
