When we talk about congruent triangles,When we talk about congruent triangles,we mean everything about them is congruent. we mean everything about them is congruent. All 3 pairs of corresponding angles are equal….All 3 pairs of corresponding angles are equal….

And all 3 pairs of corresponding sides are equalAnd all 3 pairs of corresponding sides are equal

For us to prove that 2 people are For us to prove that 2 people are identical twins, we don’t need to show identical twins, we don’t need to show that all “2000” body parts are equal. We that all “2000” body parts are equal. We can take a short cut and show 3 or 4 can take a short cut and show 3 or 4 things are equal such as their face, age things are equal such as their face, age and height. If these are the same I think and height. If these are the same I think we can agree they are twins. The same we can agree they are twins. The same is true for triangles. We don’t need to is true for triangles. We don’t need to prove all 6 corresponding parts are prove all 6 corresponding parts are congruent. We have 5 short congruent. We have 5 short cuts or methods.cuts or methods.

SSSSSSIf we can show all 3 pairs of corr.If we can show all 3 pairs of corr.

sides are congruent, the triangles sides are congruent, the triangles have to be congruent.have to be congruent.

SASSASShow 2 pairs of sides and the Show 2 pairs of sides and the

included angles are congruent and included angles are congruent and the triangles have to be congruent.the triangles have to be congruent.

Triangle Congruence

SSS – If three sides of one triangle are congruent to three sides of another triangle, then the two triangles are congruent

SAS – If two sides and the included angle of one triangle are congruent to those of another triangle, then the two triangles are congruent

ASA – If two angles and the included side of one triangle are congruent to those of another triangle, then the two triangles are congruent

AAS – If two angles and a non-included side of one triangle are congruent to those of another triangle, then the two triangles are congruent

HL – If the hypotenuse and one leg of a right triangle are congruent to those of another right triangle, then the two triangles are congruent
