Congruent shapes are the same in size and shape….however they might be rotated or reflected.

**Proving Triangles Are Congruent**

If asked to prove triangles are congruent work out all the angles and lengths you can…then if any of the following are true you can say they are congruent.

- Three Sides Are The Same (SSS)

- Two Angles And A Corresponding Side Are The Same (AAS)

- Two Sides And The Angle Between Them Are The Same (SAS)

- In A Right Angled Triangle The Hypotenuse And One Other Side Are The Same (RHS)

**NOTE:** Just because all the angles are the same, it doesn’t mean triangles are congruent!!
