- Congruence – Having the same shape and size
- Symbol for congruence ≅
- AB ≅ CD (Segment AB is congruent to segment CD.)

- ∠ A ≅ ∠ B (Angle A is congruent to angle B.)

- Reflexive Property
AB ≅ AB

∠ A ≅ ∠ A

- Symmetric Property
If AB ≅ CD, then CD ≅ AB

If ∠ A ≅ ∠ B, then ∠ B ≅ ∠ A

- Transitive Property
If AB ≅ CD and CD ≅ EF, then AB ≅ EF

If ∠ A ≅ ∠ B and ∠ B ≅ ∠ C,then ∠ A ≅ ∠ C
