4-2 Triangle Congruence by
SSS & SAS
    Objective: To Determine whether
    triangles are congruent using SSS and
    SAS postulate
What can you conclude from each
diagram
           Discovery Time!
Quickly & Quietly Get into groups of 3
•Person 1: Make a triangle with lengths
2, 3, 4 in.
•Person 2: Make a triangle with lengths
3, 4, 5 in.
•Group: Walk around and observe same
triangles made by other groups
•Person 3: Record what observations
your group have made
        SSS postulate


If 3 Corresponding Sides are
congruent, then the triangles are
congruent.
Ex 1:
            SAS Postulate:
If two corresponding sides and the
included angle are congruent then the
triangles are congruent.
 Ex 2:
From the info give, can you prove
                 Explain.
