Congruent figures are always similar. However, similar figures are only sometimes congruent.
All congruent figures are similar figures, and have identical sizes.
Congruent means two figures have exactly the same shape and size. If the shape is identical, but not the size , two figures are similar.
Are congruent figures always similar? Yes.
Yes, congruent means same size and shape.
That their sides are congruent.
= congruent sign
Similar means they are of the same shape but not necessary the same size. two figure are congruents when they are of the same shape and size. congruent figures can be similar but not similar figures aren't always congruent
Yes, congruent figures have to be similar
Congruent figures are similar - in sides as well as angles. Corresonding angles of similar figures congruent but their sides are not. The sides are all in some fixed ratio. [If that ratio is 1, the figures are congruent.]
