4.3 Analyzing Triangle Congruence
Two new shortcuts:
Triangle congruence can be proved if two angles and a NON-included side of one triangle are congruent to the corresponding angles and NON-included side of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
These two triangles are congruent by AAS
This SPECIAL shortcut is ONLY for right triangles.
If the hypotenuse and a leg of a right triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and leg of another right triangle, then the two triangles are congruent.
If this wasn’t a right triangle, what postulate would it appear to be?
These two triangles are congruent by HL
