4-4 Using
Congruent
Triangles- CPCTC
*With SSS, SAS, ASA, and AAS, we know
how to use three parts of triangles to show
that the triangles are congruent. Once we
have triangles congruent, we can make
conclusions about the other parts because
by definition, corresponding parts of
congruent triangles are congruent.
