### Geometrycongruence

1. 1. Proving TrianglesCongruent
2. 2. Two geometric figures withexactly the same size andshape.The Idea of a CongruenceThe Idea of a CongruenceA CBDEF
3. 3. How much do youHow much do youneed to know. . .need to know. . .. . . about two trianglesto prove that theyare congruent?
4. 4. In Lesson 4.2, you learned that if allsix pairs of corresponding parts (sidesand angles) are congruent, then thetriangles are congruent.Corresponding PartsCorresponding Parts∆ABC ≅ ∆DEFBACEDF1. AB ≅ DE2. BC ≅ EF3. AC ≅ DF4. ∠ A ≅ ∠ D5. ∠ B ≅ ∠ E6. ∠ C ≅ ∠ F
