Triangle Congruence Theorems
2
Congruent Triangles
• Congruent triangles have three congruent sides
and and three congruent angles.
• However, triangles can be proved congruent
without showing 3 pairs of congruent sides and
angles.

3
The Triangle Congruence Postulates Theorems
4
Theorem
• If two angles in one triangle are congruent to
two angles in another triangle, the third angles
must also be congruent.
• Think about it they have to add up to 180.

5
A closer look...
• If two triangles have two pairs of angles
congruent, then their third pair of angles is
congruent.
• But do the two triangles have to be congruent?

6
Example
Why arent these triangles congruent? What do
we call these triangles?
7
• So, how do we prove that two triangles really are
congruent?

8
ASA (Angle, Side, Angle)
• If two angles and the included side of one
triangle are congruent to two angles and the
included side of another triangle, . . .

then the 2 triangles are CONGRUENT!
9
AAS (Angle, Angle, Side) Special case of ASA
• If two angles and a non-included side of one
triangle are congruent to two angles and the
corresponding non-included side of another
triangle, . . .

then the 2 triangles are CONGRUENT!
10
SAS (Side, Angle, Side)
• If in two triangles, two sides and the included
angle of one are congruent to two sides and the
included angle of the other, . . .

then the 2 triangles are CONGRUENT!
11
SSS (Side, Side, Side)
• In two triangles, if 3 sides of one are congruent
to three sides of the other, . . .

then the 2 triangles are CONGRUENT!
12
HL (Hypotenuse, Leg)
• If both hypotenuses and a pair of legs of two
RIGHT triangles are congruent, . . .

then the 2 triangles are CONGRUENT!
13
HA (Hypotenuse, Angle)
• If both hypotenuses and a pair of acute angles of
two RIGHT triangles are congruent, . . .

then the 2 triangles are CONGRUENT!
14
LA (Leg, Angle)
• If both hypotenuses and a pair of acute angles of
two RIGHT triangles are congruent, . . .

then the 2 triangles are CONGRUENT!
15
LL (Leg, Leg)
• If both pair of legs of two RIGHT triangles are
congruent, . . .

then the 2 triangles are CONGRUENT!
16

Summary
ASA - Pairs of congruent sides contained between
two congruent angles
AAS Pairs of congruent angles and the side not
contained between them.
SAS - Pairs of congruent angles contained between
two congruent sides
SSS - Three pairs of congruent sides

Summary --- for Right Triangles Only
HL Pair of sides including the Hypotenuse and
one Leg HA Pair of hypotenuses and one acute
angle LL Both pair of legs LA One pair of
legs and one pair of acute angles
