4-4 Proving Congruence- SSS, SAS

- Means that corresponding parts are congruent,
- Matching sides and angles will be congruent

- ORDER MATTERS!!!!

- If two triangles are congruent…
- Name all congruent angles
- Name all congruent sides

R

Z

- If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle then the 3rd angles are congruent

- You can flip, turn or slide congruent triangles and they will maintain congruency!!

- If the sides of one triangle are congruent to the sides of a second triangle, then the triangles are congruent
