Yes because to be similar the shapes need to have the same ratio of sides and similar angles. To be congruent the shapes have to be the same shape and size, so 2 congruent shapes will always be similar.

sides (no, not angles, SIDES, as in LINES,) that are the same length and thickness. Just like congruent shapes, but with lines. hope you find lots of congruent lines! :)

An isosceles trapezoid only has 1 pair of congruent sides. It is drawn like this:

A square has two pairs of congruent sides. However, A square, Rhombus, Rectangle, and Parallelogram have two pairs of parallel sides. I hope this has helped you greatly! btw, i love math!

No, it means they have either 2 sides and 1 angle congruent, 2 angles congruent, 2 angles and a side congruent, or 3 sides 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.

All regular shapes have congruent sides.

Congruent means when 2 shapes are exactly the same Similar means the shapes are exactly same but with different sides

Yes because to be similar the shapes need to have the same ratio of sides and similar angles. To be congruent the shapes have to be the same shape and size, so 2 congruent shapes will always be similar.

A polygon with 2n sides (n>1) can have opposite sides congruent.

square

Since by definition corresponding sides of congruent shapes have the same length, the answer is 1.

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.

You can have two shapes - a small one and a big one - whose angles are congruent but the sides are not. In that case the shapes are not congruent but similar.

Yes, that's what makes them congruent!
