```CHAPTER 4
Congruent Triangles
What does CONGRUENCE mean?
• Congruent angles- have equal measures
• Congruent segments- have equal lengths
• What did you notice about these pictures?
• What does it mean for two objects or figures to be
congruent?
• Congruent figures- have the same shape and size
Congruent Triangles
(same shape and size)
Are these triangles congruent?
Can you rotate or reflect them so that they
fit on top of one another?
What are the corresponding angles?

What are the corresponding sides?

• Congruent triangles have the same shape
• Corresponding angles are congruent
• Congruent triangles have the same size
• Corresponding sides are congruent
Definition of Congruent Triangles
• Two triangles are congruent if and only if their vertices
can be matched up so that the corresponding parts
(angles and sides) of the triangle are congruent
• When naming congruent triangles, name the
corresponding vertices in the same order
• Example: If
ABC ≅
XYZ then name the
corresponding parts (angles and sides)

Congruent Polygons
• Polygon- closed plane figure (lies in a plane) formed by
•
•
•
•
three or more segments. Each segment intersects two
other segments at their endpoints
Congruent polygons- polygons that have congruent
corresponding parts
“Corresponding parts”-matching sides and angles
Naming congruent polygons- list corresponding vertices
in the same order
Polygons are congruent if and only if their vertices can be
matched up so that their corresponding parts are
congruent.
Congruent Figures
• Congruent polygons – have congruent corresponding parts
• List corresponding vertices in the same order
• List all congruent corresponding parts (sides & angles)

Third Angles Theorem
• If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles
of another triangle, then the third angles are congruent.
• Proof of this Theorem on p.220
Example:
F
C
B
A
E
D
• If ∠ = 40,  ∠ = 60,
• And ∠ = 40  ∠ = 60,
• What can be said about ∠  ∠?
Example
• ∆ ≅ ∆
• If ∠ = 20 + 14  ∠ = 30 − 36,
• Find the value of x and determine the measures of ∠
and ∠
•x=5
• ∠ = 114  ∠ = 114

Triangle Congruence (4-2)
Side-Side-Side (SSS) Postulate
If three sides of one triangle are congruent to three sides
of a second triangle, then the two triangles are congruent.
Triangle Congruence (4-2)
Side-Angle-Side (SAS) Postulate
If two sides and the included angle of one triangle are
congruent to two sides and the included angle in a second
triangle, then the two triangles are congruent.

Triangle Congruence (4-3)
Angle-Angle-Side (AAS) Theorem
If two angles and a non-included side of one triangle are
congruent to two angles and a non-included side in a
second triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
Triangle Congruence (4-3)
Angle-Side-Angle (ASA) Postulate
If two angles and the included side of one triangle are
congruent to two angles and the included side in a second
triangle, then the two triangles are congruent.
