1. CHAPTER 4: CONGRUENT TRIANGLES Section 4-6: Using More than one Pair of Congruent Triangles

2. CONCEPT • In section 4-3, we learned to derive information about corresponding parts of triangles after we had proved them congruent. • In each scenario, we dealt with only 2 triangles. • In section 4-6 we will generally use 4 different triangles in order to derive information.

3. CONCEPT The method we will use for all problems in this section follow the same pattern: • Identify information to prove the 1st set of 2 triangles congruent. • Derive information from CPCTC to prove the 2nd set of 2 triangles congruent. • Derive identified information from CPCTC of 2nd set triangles.
