Aim 6.5: To prove two triangles in a Quadrilateral are congruent
Remember Proofs?
• Five ways to say two triangles are congruent:
1. SSS
2. SAS
3. ASA
4. AAS
5. HL
• Angles can be congruent because of perpendicular
and parallel lines
• Bisectors and medians create congruent
sides
• Always look to prove 2 triangles are
congruent first. Then you can use CPCTC.
