### Grade 7 - Mathematics Congruency of Triangles

 Congruent Figures Two plane figures are said to congruent if they have the same shape and same size. Two line segments having the same length are congruent. Congruent Triangles There are four properties of congruency in triangles. The SAS Property: If two sides and the included angle of a triangle are respectively equal to two sides and the included angle of another triangle, then the two triangles are congruent. Let us consider two triangles ABC and DEF. Conditions: If AB = DE, BC = EF and the included angle BAC = the included angle EDF. If the above conditions are satisfied, then we say that the two triangles ABC and DEF are congruent and we can write it as ABC @ DEF. This is called Side, Angle, Side property. The ASA Property: If two angles and a side of one triangle are respectively equal to two angles and the corresponding side of another triangle, then the two triangles are congruent. Let us consider two triangles ABC and DEF. Conditions: If BC = EF, ÐB = ÐE and ÐC = ÐF. If the above conditions are satisfies then we say that the two triangles ABC and DEF are congruent and we can write it as ABC @ DEF. This is called Angle, Side, Angle property. The SSS Property: If three sides of a triangle are equal to the three sides of another triangle, then the two triangles are congruent. Let us consider two triangles ABC and DEF. Conditions: If AB = DE, BC = EF AND AC = DF. If the above conditions are satisfies then we say that the two triangles ABC and DEF are congruent and we can write it as ABC @ DEF. This is called Side, Side, Side property. The RHS Property: If the hypotenuse and a side of a right-angled triangle are equal to the hypotenuse and a side of another right-angled triangle, then the two triangles are congruent. Let us consider two triangles ABC and DEF. Conditions: ÐB = ÐE = 90°, side BC = Side EF and hypotenuse AC = hypotenuse DF. If the above conditions are satisfies then we say that the two triangles ABC and DEF are congruent and we can write it as ABC @ DEF. This is called the Right Angle, Hypotenuse, Side property. Directions: Read the above review points carefully and answer the following questions: Illustrate each of the above properties by giving at least 5 examples. Explain in your own words the different properties of congruent triangles. Explain why there is no ASS property for congruent triangles.
