Congruent Segments (sides) : Segments that are of the same lengths.

All three sides are congruent (equal in length); all three angles are congruent (same measure).All three sides are congruent (equal in length); all three angles are congruent (same measure).All three sides are congruent (equal in length); all three angles are congruent (same measure).All three sides are congruent (equal in length); all three angles are congruent (same measure).

Regular shapes:all sides and angles are the same Irregular shapes: different angle and sides

If the adjacent sides are congruent (same length) then a kite is what fits this criteria. A rhombus would also fit this - in a rhombus, all four sides are congruent.

The word for the same in math is congruent. For example, if there are two squares, both the exact same size, length, width etc., then the two shapes are congruent.

Only if they have the same number of sides.

Figures that have all sides congruent are squares. Congruent shapes have the same size and the same shape. Circles can be congruent if they have the same radius.

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

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

If all the sides and all the angles are the same and in the same order, the 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.

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.

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! :)

The two angles are congruent. They are congruentangles. Congruent is basically 'same' in math. We often say congruent shapes, congruent, angles, and congruent sides.

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.

Similar shapes have the same shape,but different size. The corresponding sides are proportional.
