Notice that the congruent sides also line up within the congruence statement.
Write a congruence statement for the two triangles below.
Line up the corresponding angles in the triangles:
From this congruence statement, we know three pairs of angles and three pairs of sides are congruent.
For questions 1-4, determine if the triangles are congruent using the definition of congruent triangles. If they are, write the congruence statement.
- Suppose the two triangles below are congruent. Write a congruence statement for these triangles.
- Explain how we know that if the two triangles are congruent, then
△TBS≅△FAM, what else do you know?
△PAM≅△STE, what else do you know?
△INT≅△WEB, what else do you know?
△ADG≅△BCE, what angle is congruent to ∠G?
