Congruent Triangles
We will…
…name and label corresponding parts of
congruent triangles.
…identify congruence transformations.
Corresponding parts
of congruent triangles
Triangles that are the same size and shape
are congruent triangles.

Each triangle has three angles and three
sides. If all six corresponding parts are
congruent, then the triangles are
congruent.

If ΔABC is congruent to ΔXYZ , then vertices of the two triangles
correspond in the same order as the letter naming the triangles.

This correspondence of vertices can be used to name the
corresponding congruent sides and angles of the two triangles.
Definition of Congruent
Triangles (CPCTC)
Two triangles are congruent if and
only if their corresponding parts
are congruent.

ARCHITECTURE A tower roof is composed of
congruent triangles all converging
toward a point at the top. Name the
corresponding congruent angles
and sides of HIJ and LIK.

Answer: Since corresponding parts of congruent triangles
are congruent,
The support beams on the fence form congruent
triangles.

a. Name the corresponding
congruent angles and sides of
ABC and DEF.

b. Name the congruent triangles.
Properties of Triangle
Congruence
Congruence of triangles is reflexive,
symmetric, and transitive.

Use the Distance Formula to find the length of each side of

Use the Distance Formula to find the length of each side of
the triangles.
Answer: The lengths of the corresponding sides of two
triangles are equal. Therefore, by the definition
of congruence,

Use a protractor to measure the angles of the triangles. You
will find that the measures are the same.

In conclusion, because                                ,
