Lesson: Congruence of Triangles: SSS, SAS, and RHS Mathematics • 8th Grade
In this lesson, we will learn how to prove that two triangles are congruent using either the side-side-side (SSS), the side-angle-side (SAS), or the right angle-hypotenuse-side (RHS) criterion.
In the given figure, triangle and triangle have two equal sides and share one equal angle. Are triangles and congruent?
Given that is the midpoint of in the given figure, without referencing angles, which congruence criteria could you use to prove triangles and are congruent?
The figure shows triangles and .
Are the two triangles congruent?
Justify your answer with one of the following reasons.
