Congruent is already a math term. Two objects are congruent if they have the same size and shape (even if they are rotated or flipped over). If you want the math symbol for congruence, it is the equal sign with a ~ over it: ≅

Give us a break! -- A 3Â° angle is congruent to another 3Â° angle, but their sum is only 6Â° , not 180Â°. -- Congruent angles are always equal, but supplementary angles don't have to be equal.

'corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent'

The answer is I dont like math sorry!! :D

If shapes are equal then they are said to be congruent

Congruent, in any basic math, means equal to or the same. For example, if I had to squares that were completely identical, I could say square one is congruent to square to.

The difference, in a subtraction sum, is the answer to the sum. For example, the difference between 6 and 4 is equal to 2. 6 - 4 = 2.

Actually there are several. Equal is one, congruent another. It would depend on the context which would be the best to use.

yes they are... congruency means the same thing as equality in math terms.

Congruency is basically a mathematical term for equality: Two congruent triangles are equal to each other regarding size, area, angles etc. But we don't say they're equal, we say they're congruent. On the other hand, we don't say 22 is congruent to 4, we say it's equal to four...

The difference between the desgineer and engineer is the math. They both do the same thing except the engineer does the math.

Nothing as they are both abbreviations for mathematics.
