LESSON 4-2

TRIANGLE CONGRUENCE

BY SSS AND SAS

Objective: Prove two triangles are congruent

using the SSS and SAS Postulates.

Key Concepts

SSS (Side-Side-Side) Postulate

If the three sides of one triangle are congruent to the three

sides of another triangle, then the two triangles are

congruent.

Key Concepts

SAS (Side-Angle-Side) Postulate

If two sides and an included angle of one triangle are congruent

to two sides and an included angle of another triangle, then the

two triangles are congruent.

Decide whether you can use the SSS or SAS Postulate to prove the triangles congruent. If so, write

the congruence statement, and identify the postulate. If not, write not possible.
