Q1:

Which of the following statements will be true for two triangles that are congruent?

  • AThere will be only translation that could be used to map one triangle onto the other.
  • BThere will always exist a combination of translations, reflections, rotations, and dilations that could be used to map one triangle onto the other.
  • CThere will be only reflection that could be used to map one triangle onto the other.
  • DThere will always exist a combination of translations, reflections, and rotations that could be used to map one triangle onto the other.
  • EThere will be only rotation that could be used to map one triangle onto the other.

Q2:

Two triangles share two sides and a contained angle. Would the two triangles be congruent?

  • A yes
  • B no

Q3:

In the given figure, triangle and triangle have two equal sides and share one equal angle. Are triangles and congruent?

  • B yes

Q4:

Determine whether the triangles in the given figure are congruent, and, if they are, state which of the congruence criteria proves this.

  • A congruent,
  • B congruent,
  • C not congruent
  • D congruent,

Q5:

Determine whether the triangles in the given figure are congruent by applying SSS, SAS, or ASA. If they are congruent, state which of the congruence criteria proves this.

  • A yes, ASA
  • B yes, SAS
  • C no
  • D yes, SSS

Q6:

Can you use to prove the triangles in the given figure are congruent? Please state your reason.

  • A no, because the angle must be contained between the two sides
  • B yes, because there are two pairs of corresponding sides equal in length and one pair of equal angles
