Dilating them

Increasing the dimensions of the smaller of the similar triangles (if they are not already congruent) by a suitably chosen constant factor.

They are said to be similar but not congruent triangles.

Yes, in similar triangles, the angles are always congruent, and the sides have the same proportions to each other.

Yes, similar triangles are congruent because in order to be congruent they must first be equal. Which in turn is the definition of a similar triangle. A triangle equal in angle measurements and/or side lengths. So, yes.

No, congruent triangles are always similar but similar triangles and not always congruent. Imagine that similar triangles can be created on a copy machine enlarge and shrink the image, turn it, even turn it over, the angles remain the same. A congruent triangle must be exactly the same as the original. Hope this helps!

The term for two triangles that are congruent after a dilation is similar.

Congruent

Triangles are congruent if all three sides in one triangle are congruent to the corresponding sides in the other.When two triangles have corresponding sides with identical ratios, the triangles are similar.Of course if triangles are congruent, they are also similar.

Yes, in similar triangles, the angles are always congruent, and the sides have the same proportions to each other.

No, they are similar. They may be congruent, but they need not be.
