It is important to know that figures are similar becase if you know they are similar but not exacly the same you can figure out the scale factor instead on completely re-measuring or trying to copy something exactly. Also you can use siimilar figures like on a map they are not life sized but they are in the same exact place. The states on a map of the untied states are exactly the same in the same place but just smaller.
