GT Geometry Drill 12/6/11

Which postulate, if any, can be used to prove the triangles congruent?

1.

2.

Geometry Objective

- STW continue to prove triangle congruent

Vocabulary

- Congruent Polygons-Two polygons are congruent if and only if their vertices can be matched up so that corresponding sides and angles are congruent.

Two vertices that are the endpoints of a side are called consecutive vertices.

For example, P and Q are consecutive vertices.

To name a polygon, write the vertices in consecutive order. For example, you can name polygon PQRS as QRSP or SRQP, but not as PRQS.

In a congruence statement, the order of the vertices indicates the corresponding parts.

Helpful Hint For example, you can name polygon

When you write a statement such as ABCDEF, you are also stating which parts are congruent.

AAS THEOREM For example, you can name polygon

If two angles and a non-included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and a non-included side of another triangle then the triangles are congruent.
