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.

  1. 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.



  2. 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, B = E and C = F.
      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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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:
      B = E = 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.
