### Chapter 4

4.2 Congruence & Triangles

Objectives/Assignment

- Identify congruent figures and corresponding parts
- Prove that two triangles are congruent
- Assignment: 1-29 all, quiz page 210

Goal 1: Identifying Congruent Figures

- Two geometric figures are congruent if they have exactly the same size and shape.
- When two figures are congruent, there is a correspondence between their angles and sides such that corresponding angles are congruent and corresponding sides are congruent.

Theorem 4.3: Third Angles Theorem

- If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle, then the third angles are also congruent.

Goal 2: Proving Triangles are Congruent

- Given: seg RP seg MN, seg PQ seg NQ , seg RQ seg MQ, mP=92o and mN is 92o.Prove: ΔRQP ΔMQN

Theorem 4.4: Properties of Congruent Triangles

- Reflexive Property of Congruent Triangles: Every triangle is congruent to itself
- Symmetric Property of Congruent Triangles: If ABC =̃ DEF, then DEF =̃ ABC
- Transitive Property of Congruent Triangles:
If ABC =̃ DEF and DEF =̃ JKL, than

ABC =̃ JKL
