Are congruent triangles.

sssThere are five methods for proving the congruence of triangles. In SSS, you prove that all three sides of two triangles are congruent to each other. In SAS, if two sides of the triangles and the angle between them are congruent, then the triangles are congruent. In ASA, if two angles of the triangles and the side between them are congruent, then the triangles are congruent. In AAS, if two angles and one of the non-included sides of two triangles are congruent, then the triangles are congruent. In HL, which only applies to right triangles, if the hypotenuse and one leg of the two triangles are congruent, then the triangles are congruent.

No. Any three consecutive congruent parts (angle-side-angle or side-angle-side) make any two triangles completely congruent.

If triangles have the corresponding sides congruent then they are congruent. SSS If two triangles have two sides and an included angle congruent then they are congruent. SAS If two triangles have two angles and an included side congruent then they are congruent. ASA SSA doesn't work.

You could prove two triangles are congruent by measuring each side of both triangles, and all three angles of each triangle. If the lengths of the sides are the same, and so are the angles, then the triangles are congruent... if not, then the triangles are not congruent. If the triangles have the exact same size and shape then they are congruent.

All the corresponding sides in congruent triangles are equal All the corresponding angles in congruent triangles are equal

No. All corresponding sides and angles have to be congruent for the triangles to be congruent.

When two triangles are congruent, there are 6 facts that are true about the triangles. The triangles have 3 sets of congruent (of equal length) sides and the triangles have 3 sets of congruent (of equal measure) angles.

The triangles are also congruent.

Some, but not all. Triangles with 2 congruent sides are called isoceles triangles. Triangles with 3 congruent sides are called equilateral triangles.

No, triangles with the same side lengths are always congruent.
