CONGRUENT TRIANGLES

Triangles are congruent, if and only if, given a one-to-one correspondence between the vertices
of a triangle, they satisfy the two conditions:

a. All pairs of corresponding angles are congruent
b. All pairs of corresponding sides are congruent

The definition requires us six congruence statements before we can say that two triangles are
congruent. The six statements must include three pairs of congruent angles and three pairs of
congruent sides. The order in which the triangle is named should be after the proper
correspondence.

Example: Determine whether the following triangles are congruent and if they are, write the
congruence statement.

1.

We have six congruence statements. The proper correspondence is
A X, B W, and C V

2. The two triangles below are congruent. This is a special case because the four sides EF, FD,
MN and NL, or two pairs of sides are congruent. The same is true for the angles. Two possible
congruence statement can be formed with . These are and

3. The two triangles below are not congruent because no part (angle or side) of is
congruent to any part of .

Exercises: Given that . is marked as shown. How should be marked?

a. What side should have two marks?
b. What angle should have a single marking?
c. Which angle is congruent to C?
d. Which side is congruent to AB?
e. If units, is also equal to 3.5?
f. If mR , is mC ?
