If two shapes have the same area and perimeter are they congruent?

Only if they have the same number of sides.

Which figure has all sides congruent?

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.

What is the ratio between the corresponding sides of two congruent shapes?

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

What does congruent and simliar mean?

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

How do you decide a figure is congruent?

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

What does congruent mean if shapes are not the same size?

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.

What are similarities of congruent shapes and similar shapes?

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.

Are congruent shapes always similar?

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.

What are congruent sides?

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! :)

What two angles have the same measure what is it called?

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

When two shapes are similar does that mean they have the same amount of 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.

Are similar shapes always congruent?

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