Slide 1

Proving Triangles Congruent

Slide 2

Two geometric figures with exactly the same size and shape.

Slide 3

How much do you

need to know. . .

. . . about two triangles

to prove that they

are congruent?

Slide 4

In Lesson 4.2, you learned that if all six pairs of corresponding parts (sides and angles) are congruent, then the triangles are congruent.
