Conventionally you use the symbol that looks like an "equals" sign but consists of three lines. It is the same symbol as is used for identities.

What is congruences?

the strongest relationship a pair of triangles can have is congruence. two segments or two angles are congruent when they have the same measures. congruent triangles have exactly the same size and shape.

Is it possible to prove one pair of triangles congruent and then use their congruent corresponding parts to prove another pair congruent?

If I understand the question correctly, the answer is yes. Thanks to the transitive property of congruence.

If one pair of opposite angles and one pair of opposite sites of a quadrilateral is congruent then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. How can it be proven?

draw a diagonal through opposite corners of the quadrilateral. This makes two triangles. Prove the triangles are congruent using SSA (side side angle) congruence. Then show that the other two sides of the quadrilater must be congruent to each other, so it is a parallelogram.

What does hl mean in reference to geometry?

HL - usually in upper case - stands for "Hypotenuse - Leg". It is a specialized triangle congruence theorem, the "regular ones are SSS, SAS, and ASA. HL says that in two right triangles, if the hypoteneuses and a pair of legs (the sides forming the right angle) are congruent, then the triangles are congruent.

Which pair of triangles must be similar?

Pairs of triangles, in general, do not have to be similar.

What is two triangles called?

A pair of triangles can form a 4 sided quadrilateral

What is Asa for congruence?

If a side and two angles at either end of it (Angle-Side-Angle = ASA) of one triangle are the same measure as that of another triangle, then the two triangles are congruent. In fact, it does not have to be the angles at the ends of the sides in question since two angles being equal means that the third pair of angle will also be equal. So as long as the ASA are in corresponding order, the triangles will be congruent.

Why hl pair is called special pair?

cuh it only works for right triangles yo!

What shape has only one pair of perpendicular lines?

I think it is either a right triangle, square, pentagon, or rectangle.

Will the lengths of two corresponding altitudes of similar triangles will have the same ratio as any pair of corresponding sides?

It is given that two triangles are similar. So that the ratio of their corresponding sides are equal. If you draw altitudes from the same vertex to both triangles, then they would divide the original triangles into two triangles which are similar to the originals and to each other. So the altitudes, as sides of the similar triangles, will have the same ratio as any pair of corresponding sides of the original triangles.

What pair of triangles name identifies the figure?
