Unit 2 Part 4 Proving Triangles Congruent

2

Angle – Side – Angle Postulate If two angles and the included side of a triangle are congruent to two angles and the included side of another triangle, then they are congruent by ASA. Included means between

3

Example of ASA A F E D C B The side is between the angles.

4

Angle – Angle – Side Postulate If two consecutive angles and a side of a triangle are congruent to two consecutive angles and a side of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent by AAS. Consecutive means one after another. Note: the side is NOT between the angles

5

Example of AAS F E D C B A The side is not between the angles.

6

Recall Reflexive Property : such as segment AB is congruent segment AB Vertical Angles are congruent such as angle G is congruent to angle H B A D C GH

Hypotenuse-Leg Theorem (HL Theorem) If the hypotenuse and leg of a right triangle is congruent to the hypotenuse and leg of another right triangle then they are congruent.

CPCTC Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles are Congruent. Once you prove two triangles congruent, then all of their corresponding parts are congruent.
