When you prove a triangle is congruent to another, it can help you prove parts of the triangle congruent by checking the ratio between all sides and angles. Thank you for asking

Yes, if two triangles have two congruent angles and two congruent sides then the triangles are guaranteed to be congruent. They only need two angles and one side congruent or two sides and one angle in order to be congruent.

No. Angles are not congruent. (Triangles may be congruent.)

Two triangles are congruent if the six elements of one triangle (three sides and three angles) are equal to the six elements of the second triangle and the two triangles have a scale factor of 1. However, in four special cases it is only necessary to match three elements to prove that two triangles are congruent. The matching of four elements is sometimes necessary, and the matching of five elements would put the matter beyond any doubt.

If the hypotenuse and a leg of two right triangles are the same measure, the triangles are congruent
