4.1 Congruent Figures

• Two objects are congruent ( ) if they have the same size and shape

• Two figures are congruent if and only if their vertices can be matched up so that corresponding parts (angles and sides) of the figures are congruent.

• When writing which figures are congruent, be sure to write the vertices in the same order.

• Sometimes you have to change the position of the figures to match up vertices

• Practice “spinning” and “sliding” the figures mentally
