  3. 3. How much do youHow much do you need to know. . .need to know. . . . . . about two triangles to prove that they are congruent?
  4. 4. In Lesson 4.2, you learned that if all six pairs of corresponding parts (sides and angles) are congruent, then the triangles are congruent. Corresponding PartsCorresponding Parts ∆ABC ≅ ∆ DEF B A C E D F 1. AB ≅ DE 2. BC ≅ EF 3. AC ≅ DF 4. ∠ A ≅ ∠ D 5. ∠ B ≅ ∠ E 6. ∠ C ≅ ∠ F
