Congruent figures are always similar. However, similar figures are only sometimes congruent.

All congruent figures are similar figures, and have identical sizes.

Are congruent figures always similar? Yes.

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.]

They must be similar, with scale factor = 1.

Congruent figures are identical in dimensions and angles whereas similar figures have dimensions in proportion to congruent figures but both have exactly the same angles.

Congruent figures are identical in dimensions and angles whereas similar figures have dimensions in proportion to congruent figures but both have exactly the same angles.

Yes, but they are more than similar - they are congruent.

Congruent figures in geometry are identical in shape and size. But not all similar shapes have congruency. Dilating one of two congruent shapes creates similar figures, but it prevents congruency.

similar figures have the same shape but not the same lengths, while congruent shapes are the same as eachother.
