Best Answer

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!

Yes, they are.

The relative angles are congruent

If you mean you can "scale" two similar triangles so that they become congruent, then yes.The answer is Dilatedilate

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.

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.

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.

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