CPCT

Report
CPCTC sounds like a very difficult thing but it
really isn't it is kind of simple the only thing you
need to now is that !!!! IT DOESN’T PROOF
TRIANGLES ARE CONGRUENT!!!!
CPCTC is an abbreviation for Corresponding Parts
of Congruent Triangles are Congruent. What
CPCTC does is, it uses triangle that are already
proven congruent to proof the parts of the
triangle are congruent. You can also use CPCTC as
a justification after the proof of triangles. So the
only thing CPCTC does is proving parts of a
triangle are congruent, remember IT DOESN’T
PROOF TRIANGLES are congruent.
To have a better Idea of what I am talking about
follow these examples down below
