An SSA triangle is ambiguous.

Suppose the triangle is ABC and, with conventional labelling, you know a, b and angle A.

Then by the cosine rule, a2 = b2 + c2 - 2bc*Cos(A)

This equation will give rise to a quadratic equation in cwhich has 2 solutions. The perimeter is then a + b + c1 or a + b + c2

An SSA type has two possible solutions.

SSA is ambiguous. If A is not a right angle, then there are two possible configurations for the triangle. So they need not be congruent.

It refers to the congruence of two sides and a non-included angle of one triangle with that of another. SSA does not imply congruence of the triangles.

No. SSA is ambiguous. Unless A = 90 degrees, there are two possible configurations for the triangle. So they need not be congruent.

The ASS postulate would be that:if an angle and two sides of one triangle are congruent to the corresponding angle and two sides of a second triangle, then the two triangles are congruent.The SSA postulate would be similar.Neither is true.

No, it is an ambiguous case: there are two possible configurations.

Because you need information about all three parts of the triangle, either the side or the angle opposite it, for each of the sides of a triangle. In AA you are missing the third angle, you could have a triangle where both angles were the same but the height could be different giving you a taller or shorter triangle. In SSA, the angle would be the one opposite the first side, so you have no information about the third side

You can't use SSA or ASS as a postulate because it doesn't determine that the triangles are congruent; right triangles are most likely determined by HL: hypotenuse leg- genius!

The only Two Triangle congruence shortcuts that do not prove congruence are: 1.AAA( Three pairs of angles in a triangle) & 2.ASS or SSA(If the angle is not in between the two sides like ASA.

SSA is something to do with constructing triangles but i am trying to find out what it means lol sorry for wasting your time and hopefully you may be able to help me answer it

You will have to call Colt to find out.
