The correct way to use AA Postulate is to find the length of something hard to measure such as height of a tree or flag pole.? How else can this postulate be used? Also, how can I prove that the AA Postulate works or makes sense? I know it is a postulate, so I would say it just works? What reallife object can I use to demonstrate this postulate in the most simplest of ways?

What do you mean by the AA postulate? Is this the postulate that any two triangles are similar iff two of their angles are congruent? If so, this is always true in Euclidean geometry, because the sum of the three angles of a triangle is 180°.
