A triangle has 6 parts ... 3 sides and 3 angles.

It's possible for two triangles to have as many as 3 of their parts congruent,

and the triangles still not be congruent.

What is c.p.c.t?

Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles is the full form od CPCT.


Can two scalene triangles not be congruent but have 5 congruent parts?

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


Triangles that have their corresponding parts congruent?

Are congruent triangles.


Why would you use CPCTC?

Once you have shown that two triangles are congruent you can use CPCTC (corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent) to show the congruence of the remaining sides and angles.


How does sas theorem answer?

The SAS theorem is used to prove that two triangles are congruent. If the triangles have a side-angle-side that are congruent (it must be in that order), then the two triangles can be proved congruent. Using this theorem can in the future help prove corresponding parts are congruent among other things.


What postulate or theorem verifies the congruence of 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.


Abbreviation for corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent?

CPCTC or congruent


What is congruent parts of congruent triangles are congruent?

Things that are the same size


What must be true before using corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent in a proof?

The triangles must be congruent.


What are three ways that you can prove that triangles are 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.


What does CPCTC mean in math terms?

CPCTC is an acronym for the phrase 'corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent' It means that once we know that two triangles are congruent, we know that all corresponding sides and angles are congruent.


What does CPOCTAC stand for?

corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent
