If the triangles meet the condition of the postulate or theorem, then, you have congruent triangles. They are the SSS postulate, SAS postulate, ASA postulate, AAS theorem, and Hypotenuse-Leg theorem SSS postulate: If three sides of a triangle are congruent to three sides of a second triangle, then the two triangles are congruent Example:

Keaton henderson quizletI can prove triangles are congruent using SSS, ASA.

PRACTICE:

Describe the symbol for triangles and how congruent triangles are depicted. Be sure to emphasize the order of the letters. 8. [Slide 6] Explain that the students will need to be able to write congruence statements. [Press enter] The first is to determine whether the triangles are in fact congruent by looking for corresponding parts.
