Yes. Similar triangles have equal corresponding angles, and so do congruent triangles.

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

The triangles are similar, but not necessarily congruent.

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

Increasing the dimensions of the smaller of the similar triangles (if they are not already congruent) by a suitably chosen constant factor.

Yes. Similar triangles have equal corresponding angles, and so do congruent triangles.

no theycan not

They are said to be similar but not congruent triangles.

Congruent

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

No. For example the triangles with sides {3, 4, 5} and {6, 8, 10} are similar but not congruent.

No. If they are congruent they must be similar. The reverse is not true, though.

Triangles are congruent if all three sides in one triangle are congruent to the corresponding sides in the other.When two triangles have corresponding sides with identical ratios, the triangles are similar.Of course if triangles are congruent, they are also similar.
