Congruence and Similarity of Triangles

 

Congruent Triangles: Triangles are congruent when they have exactly the same three sides and exactly the same three angles.

What is “Congruent”?

It means that one shape can become another using turns, flips and/or sliders.

The equal sides and angles may not be in the same position (if there is a turn or a flip), but they are there.

Same Sides: When the sides are same then the triangles are congruent.
