Lesson 4-3

Proving Triangles Congruent

(SSS, SAS, ASA, AAS, HL)

Lesson 4-3: SSS, SAS, ASA 2

PostulatesSSS If the sides of one triangle are congruent to the sides of a

second triangle, then the triangles are congruent.

Included Angle: In a triangle, the angle formed by two sides is the included angle for the two sides.

Included Side: The side of a triangle that forms a side of two given angles.

PostulatesASAIf two angles and the included side of one triangle are

congruent to the two angles and the included side of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
