Triangles are congruent if all three sides in one triangle are congruent to the corresponding sides in the other.

When two triangles have corresponding sides with identical ratios, the triangles are similar.

Of course if triangles are congruent, they are also similar.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How do you prove sss theorem in similar triangles?

depends on what you have.... one way is to see that the the triangles share two same angles, and one side with equal length...

How do you make a flowchart for congruent or similar triangles?

Here guys Thanks :D Congruent triangles are similar figures with a ratio of similarity of 1, that is 1 1 . One way to prove triangles congruent is to prove they are similar first, and then prove that the ratio of similarity is 1. In these sections of the text the students find short cuts that enable them to prove triangles congruent in fewer steps, by developing five triangle congruence conjectures. They are SSS! , ASA! , AAS! , SAS! , and HL ! , illustrated below.

Are quadrilaterals and triangles similar in any way?

They are both closed figures

Which are true statements about Sierpinski triangles?

They can be constructed in more than one way. They have fractional dimension. They are self-similar. They are constructed by removing small triangles from a big triangle.

How many triangles can make a hexagon?

4 triangles make 1 hexagon. (easy way to find out how many triangles there are in a polygon- take number of sides of the polygon, subtract 2 from it, that's your answer!)

Why do you say congruent and not equal triangles?

Triangles are not equal to each other in the same way that 5 = 5 or 23 = 8 + 15 because they are not discrete values. Congruent is a similar term to equivalent, which allows comparison.
