• 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

• 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

• 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

• 4. Model with mathematics.

• 5. Use appropriate tools strategically.

• 6. Attend to precision.

• 7. Look for and make use of structure.

• 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

• USE the definition of congruence in terms of rigid motions to SHOW that two triangles ARE congruent if and only if corresponding pairs of sides and corresponding pairs of angles ARE congruent.

• How do we show that triangles are congruent?

• How do we use triangle congruence to plane and write proves ,and prove that constructions are valid?

• Prove that triangles are congruent using the ASA Congruence Postulate and the AAS Congruence Theorem

• Use congruence postulates and theorems in real-life problems.

Use the SSS Congruence Postulate to show that ABCFGH.

SOLUTION

AC = 3 and FH= 3

AB = 5 and FG= 5

d = (x2 – x1 )2+ (y2 – y1 )2

d = (x2 – x1 )2+ (y2 – y1 )2

BC = (–4 – (–7))2+ (5– 0)2

GH = (6 – 1)2+ (5– 2)2

= 32+ 52

= 52+ 32

= 34

= 34

Use the distance formula to find lengths BC and GH.

BC = 34 and GH= 34

### Proving Triangles are Congruent

ASA; AAS

If two angles and the included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the included side of a second triangle, then the triangles are congruent.

Postulate 21: Angle-Side-Angle (ASA) Congruence Postulate

If two angles and a non-included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the corresponding non-included side of a second triangle, then the triangles are congruent.

Theorem 4.5: Angle-Angle-Side (AAS) Congruence Theorem

Given: congruent to two angles and the corresponding non-included side of a second triangle, then the triangles are congruent.A  D, C  F, BC  EF

Prove: ∆ABC  ∆DEF

Theorem 4.5: Angle-Angle-Side (AAS) Congruence Theorem

You are given that two angles of congruent to two angles and the corresponding non-included side of a second triangle, then the triangles are congruent.∆ABC are congruent to two angles of ∆DEF. By the Third Angles Theorem, the third angles are also congruent. That is, B  E. Notice that BC is the side included between B and C, and EF is the side included between E and F. You can apply the ASA Congruence Postulate to conclude that ∆ABC  ∆DEF.

Theorem 4.5: Angle-Angle-Side (AAS) Congruence Theorem

Is it possible to prove the triangles are congruent? If so, state the postulate or theorem you would use. Explain your reasoning.

Two pairs of corresponding angles and one pair of corresponding sides are congruent. You can use the AAS Congruence Theorem to prove that ∆EFG  ∆JHG.

• You can often use more than one method to prove a statement. In Example 2, you can use the parallel segments to show that D  C and A  E. Then you can use the AAS Congruence Theorem to prove that the triangles are congruent.
