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

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

A similar figure has the same interior angles as a congruent figure but its sides are in proportion to a congruent figure.

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!

All congruent shapes are similar, but not all similar shapes are congruent.

No.

Yes, congruent figures have to be similar

H to the no

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

Are congruent figures always similar? Yes.

The angles for congruent shapes and the angles in similar shapes are all the same. All the sides are also proportional in both. Basically, all congruent shapes are similar but not all similar shapes are congruent.

In short, no. Similar shapes are shapes in which all corresponding angles congruent regardless of the length of the sides. Congruent shapes have congruent corresponding angles and corresponding sides. In effect congruent shapes is a special condition of similar shapes.

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.]

no, they could be different size but same shape and be similar but not congruent.
