Example 2: SSS on a Coordinate Plane

a. Triangle ABC has vertices A(1, 1), B(0, 3), and C(2, 5). Triangle EFG has vertices E(1, -1), F(2, -5)

and G(4, -4). Determine if the triangles are congruent.

b. Triangle JKL has vertices J(2, 5), K(1,1), and L(5,2). Triangle NPQ has vertices N(-3,0), P(-7,1) and

Q(-4.4). Determine if the triangles are congruent.
